fdisk does nothing different than parted when it comes to BLKRRPART.
You can use parted to modify partition tables on a disk that has a use
count 1 (one rw fd pointing to the disk, no mounted partitions, etc.)
In this case the BLKRRPART will succeed and the ll_blk system will
have the new geometries loaded.

If the disk is being used, you still have to reboot.
