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

Hi all,

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.
