Upon partitioning during install, I receive the following message:

Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 -- Device or resource busy. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 until you reboot -- so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting.

I can reliably reproduce this about 75% of the time. I believe it is so reproducible as this machine is being reimaged with a different partitioning scheme each time before I run the installer.

I will attach syslog and partman and can reproduce this as necessary to get additional information. These logs are from an HP Proliant DL320s G1 but it is occurring on multiple different machines.

Per cjwatson I am creating a new bug rather than attaching this to an existing similar bug.
