Would you care to write that?  Also, since it is fixing a bug, I'll bet
you can at least outline a test case that fails without your patch yet
passes with it.  Would you please do that, or better still, write a

I'll fold this in and add a NEWS entry tonight, but the t8000-loop.sh test fails without this because loop doesn't support HDIO_GETGEO, without which you can not manipulate one partition while another partition is mounted. At least, I thought that's what t8000 did or I added, now I need to double check.
