Unfortunately this does not fix the issue completely for me. Digging a
bit deeper revealed that /proc/partitions does list my USB disk ("sda")
but  removes it since it has group "floppy". I made sure I have "USB
Mass storage emulation type" set to "Hard disk" in the BIOS
configuration, though. I'm not sure how the kernel determines if a
device is "disk" or "floppy"...
Modifying line  to accept both "disk" and "floppy" works. Yes, it's
ugly but I'm not expecting to install any machines that have real floppy
drives so I guess I should be safe.
