Why is partition c always the full disk?  My boss is insisting that
we can use partition c as a normal partition on a *large* RAID and
I can't think of a good reason for not doing this other than, "it's
just not done."

I'd like to be able to point at a bit of code, peferably in the kernel,
that depends upon partition c being the full disk.  Using it for a
regular partition gives me the willies.
