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

From: Petr Uzel <petr.uzel@suse.cz>
Subject: parted: Make informing the kernel more reliable
References: bnc#657360
Patch-mainline: no

This patch should make parted's process of informing the kernel
about changes of partition table sligtly more reliable.
It consists of 2 quite unrelated parts:

* increase the max sleep time if partition is busy from 1 to 2 seconds
* do not inform the kernel when only partition flags change - kernel
  does not care about the flags
