[pve-devel] [PATCH v2 storage 1/6] diskmanage: add change_parttype and is_partition helpers

For change_parttype, only GPT-partitioned disks are supported, as I
didn't see an option for sgdisk to make it also work with
MBR-partitioned disks. And while sfdisk could be used instead (or
additionally) it would be a new dependency, and AFAICS require some
conversion of partition type GUIDs to MBR types on our part.

Changes from v1:
    * Add is_partition helper here, because it is used in the next
      patch.
