In my case it is more complicated. Out of the box it was using sda and
using the whole disk. After I formatted it, it required sda1 and sda2.
So either way would have caused me problems at some point in time.
Hotplug probably needs to be made smarter, have it read in the results
of 'fdisk -L' parse it for mountable partitions and make entries for all
of them. This would be useful for usb/firewire hard disks as well.
