[Nagiosplug-devel] check_disk -p Device checking /dev

while I was testing my feature enhancements for check_disk (which are
checked in now), I recognized that -p DEVICE doesn't check the actual
device but checks the best match (/dev). I can't imagine a case where
this makes sense at the moment.
Using -E is a workaround but I think it's not obvious to users since
--help prints "-p --path --partition". I would suggest to ignore the
exact_match flag for devices.
What do you think?
ps. I accidently found a forum post on nagios-portal.de where a user had
exactly this problem, three days ago.
