Yea, that looks like the way to do it...

You might be able to avoid locking the table (and all partitions) by:

1. drop the partition p2
2. Insert the new data from mysqldump (will lock the partition p1 for some engines)
3. reorganizing the data into the partition p1,p2 (locking partition p1,p2 for some engines)

(this depends on how your app uses the partitioned table though...)
