I have a problem with the filesystem code. In the amiga
partition/filesystem implementation, part of the data regarding the
amiga filesystems is found in the partition table. This data needs to be
passed to the filesystem code, but only the geometry gets passed right
now (at least for the probe code, didn't check the others yet).

Is there a way to handle this with the current API, or would it be
possible to modify the low level api to pass this information somehow to
the partition code ?
