Thanks for the patch!
Can you provide examples that we could massage into
a test case or two that would exercise this new code
and help prevent accidental regressions later on?

I.e., can you give a quick recipe for creating an image that
parted currently fails to recognize as sun-RAID-enabled,
yet that _is_ recognized with your patch?  Also, since this
copies from old-sun to new-sun formats, a stand-alone example
showing how to exercise that code would be most welcome.

Of course, we can figure out how to do all of this ourselves,
but that takes more time...  With a clear/concise reproducer/demo
I can usually manage to find time to write portable shell code
that can serve as an addition to the test suite.
