This driver (or the generic PS3 code) has appearently problems with
glibc aborts parted because the malloc metadata get corrupted. While it
is reproducible, the place where it crashes changes with every version
of the debug attempt.
I dont have a handle right now, all I know is that the metadata after a
malloc area get overwritten with zeros.

Can you have a look at this? 
parted /dev/ps3da
print (a few times)
