Description

For some reason that I cannot grok HAL is rewriting partition names for devices. The name /dev/dsk/c5t0d0p1 becomes /dev/dsk/c50d0p0:1. This is a problem because all utilities that are backed by HAL (such as rmmount and rmformat) require names to be formatted this way or they won't work (returning a silly error like "device not found"). It's a seemingly unnecessary change which just makes things inconsistent.
