File more-reliable-informing-the-kernel.patch of Package parted.3440

# bnc#657360
#
# This patch should make parted's process of informing the kernel
# about changes of partition table sligtly more reliable.
# It consists of 3 quite unrelated parts:
#
# 1. increase the max sleep time if partition is busy from 1 to 2 seconds
# 2. do not inform the kernel when only partition flags change - kernel
#    does not care about the flags
# 3. call 'udevadm settle' before doing BLKPG_DEL_PARTITION ioctl()
