Well, it seems this new rekease broke the hfs patch again, altough only
configure and libparted/fs_hfs/Makefile.in are affected, and those are
generated files which should maybe not be part of the patch in the first

Anyway, i guess it would be much easier if the hfs patches where now finally
integrated into the main parted source code, what exactly is stopping that
from happening ? That patch-set has been in debian and i hear gentoo, since
ages, so i suppose it is ok to use. Maybe some copyright work is needed

He, nice, this obsolets my sun_disklabel patch in debian.

And this removes my no-clobber patch.

I wonder if this may obsolet the debian devfs patch ?

Sounds really cool :)
