Bug#511518: os-prober: probes extended and swap partitions

Package: os-prober
Version: 1.28
Severity: normal

On my machine os-prober probes also extended and swap partitions leading
to quite a bunch of kernel failure messages about the various filesystems
not being able to mount the partitions.  Shouldn't the partition type
be considered first?

The layout is as follows:
   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda3               1       24321   195358401    5  Extended
/dev/hda5               1         243     1951834+  82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/hda6             244        9969    78124063+  83  Linux
/dev/hda7            9970       24321   115282408+  83  Linux
