Hi Andrew,

I'm just looking to port the fix of the MacOS X raw_part->boot_start not
being 0, which causes parted to fail with the message:

Error: The boot region doesn't start at the start of the partition

on MacOS X systems. Your 1.6.0-pre8 release contained the fix, from the

* libparted/disk_mac.c (_rawpart_analyse): ignore boot region stuff,
  so it works properly with Mac OSX.

Did your fix simply consist of the commenting out of the:
        if (raw_part->boot_start) { }

Or were there other changes made as well?
