IOException: Partition(s) 5 on /dev/sda have been written, but we have been unable to inform the kernel of the change, probably because it/they are in use.  As a result, the old partition(s) will remain in use.  You should reboot now before making further changes.

Steps to Reproduce

1. project1:configure --enable-board=intel-x86-64 --enable-kernel=standard --enable-rootfs=glibc-std+installer-support --with-sstate-dir=/buildarea1/build/SSTATE_CACHE --enable-bootimage=ext4
2. make all
3. project2: configure --enable-board=intel-x86-64 --enable-kernel=standard --enable-rootfs=wr-installer --enable-target-installer=yes --with-installer-target-build=/WRINSTALLER/0521/build_prj/combo1 --enable-bootimage=iso
4. make all
5. EFI boot on target
6. Partition disk with EFI mount point
