Hi. I've tested that stuff.
My extended partition isn't recongnized

this is the partition layout:
#fdisk -l /dev/hdc
Disk /dev/hdc: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 4865 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdc1 * 1 3935 31607856 5 Extended
/dev/hdc2 1217 2500 10313730 83 Linux
/dev/hdc3 3936 4764 6658942+ 83 Linux
/dev/hdc5 1 33 265009+ 83 Linux
/dev/hdc6 * 34 1204 9406026 83 Linux
/dev/hdc7 1205 1216 96358+ 82 Linux swap

This is the expected behaviour under stable kernels

hdc: 78165360 sectors (40021 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=77545/16/63
hdc: [DM6:DDO] [remap +63] [4865/255/63] hdc1 < hdc5 hdc6 hdc7 > hdc2 hdc3
but under unstable kernels the output is like this:
hdc: hdc1

So hdc6, the root partition can't be mounted. This happens
with/without the patches.
