I thought the intent was to avoid such warnings when they do not apply.
The kernel was indeed notified of the creation of the two new
partitions, and I was able to create file systems on them.

Do you have an active LVM on a partition on the drive?

Thanks, but no.

Okay, so the problem is not due to an active LVM partition. Some testing has shown me that the patches to reenable BLKPG ioctls actually fix the problem of editing other unmounted partitions on a device with an active LVM partition.

Was the command in your testing actually the following or was there a typo?

$ sudo ./parted -s $dev u B mkpart F13-root $s2 $e2

If this was the command then what is a partition type of "F13-root"?
