Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 231518
Fix error handling in check_partition(), again

The fixes that went in for
Bugzilla Bug 210234: [RHEL5 BETA1] Patch - Fix error handling in
check_partition() and rescan_partitition()
have had 2 corrections since they went upstream, which should probably be pulled
back. Those fixes are also slated for the backported patch for RHEL4 in bug 229709.
One change addresses the error return from rescan_partitions, which could
erroneously look like -EPERM when it should be -EIO.
The other addresses a possibly missed IO error in the check_partition error return.

kernel.org is acting up, but I think this is the patch that needs to come back;
is part of it; the other change still needs to go upstream as near as I can tell.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Kernel Team for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release, and has moved to bugzilla
