Generic partition creation interface.

This commit introduces a generic partition creation interface

The implementation is based on parted but is hopefully not too
dependent on the particulars of parted.

The following new calls are introduced:

    Initialize a disk with a partition table.  Unlike the sfdisk-
    based interface, we also support GPT and other partition
    types, which is essential to scale to devices larger than 2TB.

  guestfs_part_add: Add a partition to an existing disk.

    Convenience function which combines part_init & part_add,
    creating a single partition that covers the whole disk.

    Set various aspects of existing partitions.

    List partitions on a device.  This returns a programming-friendly
    list of partition structs (in contrast to sfdisk-l which cannot
    be parsed).

    Return the partition table type, eg. "msdos" or "gpt".
