[arch-releng] Possible issue with SCSI disks (prevents automatic partitioning)

`hdparm -I', a command used in the installer to discover the total 
capacity of hard drives, fails in VMware with SCSI disk emulation. It 
works fine with IDE disk emulation though.

I'm not sure if this affects real hardware with SCSI disks as well, 
maybe someone with access to such hardware could check?

The report for this possible bug is @ http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/12949
