block: add GENHD_FL_NO_PART_SCAN
There are cases where suppressing partition scan is useful - e.g. for lo devices and pseudo SATA devices which advertise to be a disk but get upset on partition scan (some port multiplier control devices show such behavior). This patch adds GENHD_FL_NO_PART_SCAN which suppresses partition scan regardless of the number of possible partitions. disk_partitionable() is renamed to disk_part_scan_enabled() as suppressing partition scan doesn't imply the device can't be partitioned using BLKPG_ADD/DEL_PARTITION calls from userland. show_partition() now directly tests disk_max_parts() to maintain backward-compatibility. -v2: Updated to make it clear that only partition scan is suppressed not partitioning itself as suggested by Kay Sievers.
