blkpg.h describes a number of functions including get_all_partitions()
and test_partition_in_use() but it seems that only two are actually
implemented ( add and delete partition ). I am working on getting
parted to make use of BLKPG instead of BLKRRPART so it can work on disks
that have partitions in use, and it would be very helpful if the other
functions to enumerate the existing partitions with their start offset
and length were implemented. Is there any chance of this being done any
time soon?
