[dm-devel] Partition tables on devices



	Hi,

I have a disk that embeds another disk image (including a partition table and
partitions).  Using dmsetup and the linear target I created a new device to
access the embedded disk image. Cfdisk shows me the partitions on the new
device, but the kernel didn't scan for partitions and hence didn't created
devices for them.

Does there exist a way to let the kernel scan for partition tables on a device
created using dmsetup? Or should I use a script like the one proposed by
Christophe Saout in http://lkml.org/lkml/2003/7/18/141?

Thanks in advance!

With kind regards,
