It adds both filesystem probe and full partition table support, right?
The patch looks good... I'm just wondering if you should print
out a warning about it being unstable?  (How much in-the-wild use has it

Perhaps put this in amiga_read():

        ped_exception_throw (
                _("The software to support for Amiga partition tables "
                  "is new and has not been widely tested."))

Remind me why the amiga file system doesn't have a clobber op?

Are we looking at the same thing?  The s390.dpatch in the debian/testing
package is support for s390 partition tables.  We would need a copyright
disclaimer or assignment for this one...

I just got a USB key image sent to me that has non-512-byte sector
size.  I'll have to have a look at this...

Looks fine.
