which also fixes the remaining parts of #2285, i.e. extending
the diskmanage module and creation to support partitions.

The series consists of:

Tighten the checks in the disk creation paths by re-doing them after

Work around a udev bug[0] leading to outdated device info from lsblk,
by explicitly calling udevadm trigger in the appropriate places.

Add support for partitions for the disk creation paths (both back-end
and UI).

Also change the partition type in the appropriate places as that
information is used when querying disk info.

Ultimately, pve-manager depends on both pve-storage and
proxmox-widget-toolkit, but many things can be applied independently.
