Karsten has mailed me the full partman log privately, and from that the 
cause of the problem shows very clearly.

The device that is passed to partman is:
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part

The code in partman that interprets this expects either:
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1

But in this case, "part" without a partition number seems to be used for 
the whole disk, which perfectly explains the display as a partition 
without partition number.
We could support this in the relevant partman function, but I'd like to 
know if this use of "part" to indicate the whole disk is valid first. It 
could also be a bug, either in the kernel or in udev's devfs 
compatibility code.

So, my follow-up questions:
- what is the output of 'cd /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/; ls -l'?
- what is the non-devfs representation of this disk (e.g. /dev/hda*) and
  what devices are present for that?
- what driver is being used for this disk controller?

Cheers,
FJP
