What is the problem here ? We already do all the stuff to find the partitions
by parsing /proc/partitions and looking at the /dev/sda#.
All the work is there, i think, we just need to precede the code for it by a
check for /dev/sda without /dev/sda# below it.
When i find some time for it, i will try to get a look. Hope i find the
relevant code part ...
