[pve-devel] [PATCH storage] Diskmanage: check for extended partitions

those would not get assinged a usage and thus appear in the list
when we want to select a partition (e.g. for creating a zpool)

since we cannot do anything with such a  partition, return the usage
'Extended Partition' for these.
