Oh sorry.

But then I really don't know what we can do else then my already sent
As long as we want to have `grub-probe -t drive' to show the right
partition even with BSD ones, we have to map the linux numbers to grub
I still think I don't need to bother to write to LKML to fix HDIO_GETGEO
for device-mapper. It's a low level interface, which is also used for
LVM where HDIO_GETGEO just doestn't make any sense.
So I think UUIDs are the only other choice to map linux partition
numberts to GRUB partitions.
