Well, I looked at sfdisk(8) and parted(8) source code and they all need the
geometry description. If I understood correctly the reason why is that it
'prefers' to align partition sizes/starts on a cylinder boundary because some
bootloaders probably use CHS addressing, but I'm really not sure.
Thanks but I probably won't use it. Using sfdisk, for example, is a
way to get the geometry from a script.
