According to Thiemo this is most likely a mips kernel issue. Therefore
cloning the BR to the kernel and blocking the partman issue with that.

The issue has been worked around in partman-base (function humandev in
definitions.sh) by adding code that recognizes .../lun0/part (without
partition number) as a disk; leaving partman bug open as the workaround
should be removed once the kernel bug is fixed.
