This has been discussed here on LKML before. The preliminary patch at
fixes the problem for me, but it may not be the "real" fix.
If you intend to mount the floppy as a file system you may also have
to patch fs/partitions/check.c:check_partition() similarly to how
fs/block_dev.c was patched. I haven't tested that bit yet.
