Default dm mpath: add ability to disable partition creation

From: Hannes Reinecke <hare@suse.de>

When multipath devices are being used as disks for VM Guests any
partition scanning / setup should be done within the VM Guest, not from
host. So we need to a mechanism to switch off partition scanning and
creation via kpartx.

The new 'no_partitions' feature serves as a notifier to kpartx to _not_
create partitions on these multipath devices.
