    I'm reposting this patch series as v4 since there have been no additional
    comments, and I cleaned up one extra bit of unneeded code (in 3/3). The patches
    are against Linus's tree: 2bfc96a1
    Would this patchset be suitable for inclusion in an mm branch?
    This changes adds a partition_meta_info struct which itself contains a
    union of structures that provide partition table specific metadata.
    This change leaves the union empty. The subsequent patch includes an
    implementation for CONFIG_EFI_PARTITION-based metadata.
