The inimitable Stephen Powell sent something like the two patches
below to <http://bugs.debian.org/578097>.  It seems that they teach
the dasd driver in parted to handle CMS-labeled partitions, which are
a little more flexible and probably more common than the LDL format
libparted already supports.

Unfortunately, I do not have a specimen to experiment with, so I
cannot say if my whitespace tweaks and so on broke the patch.
Stephen, would it be possible to put up an image of a tiny partition
to try this out with?

The support is for reading only because that is what is most needed.
I don’t imagine there would be any major technical obstacles to
teaching parted to write these partitions, too.


Stephen Powell (2):
  dasd: take sector size into account when calculating starting block
  dasd: add read-only support for CMS labeled minidisks
