    SubjectRe: [PATCH] bsd disklabel detection
    Thanks for the patch!
    I wondered about

    > -#define BSDI_PARTITION 0xb7 /* BSDI Partition ID */
    > +#define BSDI_PARTITION 0x9f /* BSDI Partition ID */

    You write:

    but the use of 0xb7 and 0xb8 for BSDI seems well established.
    Is going to 0x9f a recent change? Or are these different systems?
    Does the BSDI fdisk have a list of types built-in?

    For the time being I suppose we should accept both 0xb7 and 0x9f.
