[SRM] partman-lvm: one liner fix for elusive RAID/LVM issue


This week I finally got a handle on a very annoying partitioning error that 
can occur when installing on a system that already had software RAID 
devices before starting the installation.
When a pre-existing RAID is activated, only /dev/mdX block device file are 
created and not /dev/md/X and only the latter were being allowed for in a 
check in partman-lvm.

The patch below fixes this. Please approve for inclusion in the next point
