I'm running parted 3.2, which appears to be the latest available
release on the gnu.org ftp site, as well as in my distribution
(Gentoo).  However it's also older than that commit, so it probably
does not have it.  

Is there some super-secret release that's less than four years old that
I'm just not managing to find? Or have distros just been applying
patches themselves and continuing to call it 3.2?  There are some
unstable packages I could try if that's the case just to see if they've
pulled that commit in.

If not I'll try building it my self when I get a chance.
