Description Jan van Eldik 2013-05-23 13:45:57 UTC
"growpart" spits out a non-fatal error message on systems where
partx does not support the "--help" option.

# /usr/bin/growpart /dev/vda 1
partx: unrecognized option '--help'
unknown option

This is with:

# rpm -qf /usr/bin/growpart

A trivial patch quiesces the script:
