This is a series of patches to address parted's renumbering of

I have tested them with extended/logical partitions, lvm, md,
lvm-on-md. There are surely some cases I missed but they have
been tested beyond the basics.

I like them, ack, assuming this is for rawhide only and not for

[PATCH 5/5] Don't fail to commit partitions due to active lvm/md.

Since I believe the parted ebusy errors due to unnecessary udev
event generation on the partition nodes bug has been nailed, I think
we no longer need the retry loop around committing to disk.

Given that this patch shows that there may be cases where we actually
cannot commit to the disk as part of a normal install, I think we
should remove the retry loop, and only try the commit once,
as it likely only serves to slow down installations now a days.
