When I write in fdisk I always get:
Calling ioctl() to re-read partition table.
and according to the code fdisk calls:
Upon exiting fdisk new partitions are immediately available. IIRC it
fails with the device is in use -- for example, if I add a partition
in unallocated space without unmounting an existing partition. That
generally isn't a problem for me, as I rarely change partitions on the
boot device, but I can image cases where it is.
Am I abnormal? Or does partprobe call something different so that it
can re-scan changed partitions even if the device is in use?
