Anyway, it would have been very useful to have this solution available in the kernel at that time, such that with a couple additional configuration tweaks, he'd have been on his way.
I don't think that's actually the case (although I haven't looked at the actual patch, so correct me if I'm wrong). The implication of this article was that you could create a loopback device whose backing store was a single SCSI (SATA) partition, and then partition the loopback device. Accessing existing partitions isn't the same thing.
