This is only true for eg, NetBSD and OpenBSD.  For FreeBSD and
GNU/Hurd and also for Grub, one can have one disklabel-ed
partition for each and every PC primary and logical partition.

And in the case of (hd2,3,a), this notation is required because
the master partition is (hd2,1), thus (hd2,a) == (hd2,1,a).

Which is all besides the point, the point is that grub cannot find
the `e' partition when the command `geometry (hd2)' is issued.
