Subject3.12-rc5 and overwritten partition table
Date
Hi...

I have a shiny new Haswell notebook (Lenovo T440s), where with 3.11 processor power
management didn't work, so I got 3.12-rc5 installed.
Worked fine for a few days, then today it no longer boots and inspection yields...

:-(

In order to figure out the reason for this, can you kernel guys maybe
a) tell me what is that datastructure?
b) can power management be buggy to cause this - I played with powertop tuneables
approximately while this happened?

...and point me to a recovery tool/doc for finding the partitions again,
"testdisk" tool only found 1 of 3, the least important one at the beginning of
disk but not the rest :-(

Thank you for any pointers/help!
