Actually, the patches are complementary. However, my patch I won't be
continuing to work on, as the entire way that partitions are
read/validated/passed to devfs/etc will be changed in 2.5, and I've already
forwarded this patch over to the maintainer of that code (whose name escapes
my memory at the moment). So I'd say don't worry about it from the devfs
end, you'll see the changes once 2.5 opens and these changes get merged in
to that tree.
