forcing the kernel to re-scan the partition table
to re-scan the partition table once it has been altered without having to do a reboot?

what did you do to get new partitons? Did you use a partion tool like fdisk on a partition that wasn't mounted. Or something like cfdisk?
If so then just add new partions and mount points into your fstab and then mount them.
or do you mean you added new harddisks?
Sorry if this doesn't help I don't exactly understand what you are trying to do
