Subject[PATCH] plan9 partition support



hi all,


this one patch i believe is harmless as it only
reads partition table, but who knows. the diff
is against 2.4.0.

the patch locates partitions inside the plan9
partition table.

as you may know, a plan9 partition table has three
type of partitions inside (9fat, fs, and swap).
9fat is fat16.

with msdos file system, linux will mount 9fat partition,
so you could use the 9fat and other fat16 partition inside
plan9 from linux and plan9.

i can't find anyone with plan9 to test, but it works for
me, so...

Say Y here if you would like to use hard disks under Linux which
were partitioned on an x86 PC (not necessarily by DOS).
+
+Plan9 partition table support (EXPERIMENTAL)
+CONFIG_PLAN9_PARTITION
+ Plan9 uses its own hard disk partition scheme on your PC. It
+ requires only one entry in the primary partition table of your disk
+ and manages it similarly to DOS extended partitions. Saying Y
+ here allows you to read the existing partitions, and mount FAT16
+ partitions from within Linux, if you have also said Y to "MSDOS fs
+ support" or "VFAT (Windows-95) fs support". You can mount the first
+ FAT16 partition (9fat) directly without this. If you don't know what
+ all this is about, say N.
