Devices where the filesystem is in whole disk are common nowadays [1]; I
don't think it's a good idea to require that a filesystem is in a partition
in order to access it.

See attached patch.  Any comments?

[1] for example, debian provides usb images of the debian-installer with a
    fat filesystem and no partitions:
