Probably the BSY flag fix

probably this one:
OSDictionary * IODiskMatching( const char * path, char * buf, int maxLen)
// scan the tail of the path for "@unit:partition"

It always seemed to work better for me, so I'm in favor of changing

I will be done with exams in few days, I will resend them then.
