I presume that you're assuming that my /proc/partitions is empty because its
size shows as 0:

ls -l /proc/partitions
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 May 23 17:31 /proc/partitions

It does, however, have several lines in it.

cat /proc/partitions

Might my problem be that the kernel is showing its size as 0 even though it
actually does contain data?
