   Hi,  I'm working in some Linux ext2 filesystem 
applications and I need to read an inode.  The problem is 
that the function iget(.....) needs the superblock.  Is it 
possible get the superblock without the partition info?  Are 
there any functions that return the current partition?
                Thanks for your attention
