Your code was getting the raw MS-Dos partition type. This isn't
really needed by libvirt, and indeed we do need to work with 
partition tables that aren't MS-Dos format, eg GPT. As an alternative
it looks like we ought to be able to get enough data for libvirt's 
needs by looking at a combo of the PED_PARTITION_RAID/PED_PARTITION_LVM
flags, the 'fs_type' field of PedPartition.
