#1928 closed bug (fixed)

Initializing of a partition only succeeds if it's no BFS partition already

If you have a BFS partition that you want to initialize again using DriveSetup, it will fail with B_ERROR.

The reason is that "initialize" itself is only called when the partition type differs, which is apparently not the case here. Calling the other methods just fail.

Situation improved with hrev24419: the initialization job is now created, but _kern_initialize_partition() now returns B_BUSY.
