[Buildroot] [PATCH] kpartx package

kpartx (from the multipath-tools package) scans for partition tables in
userland and uses the device-mapper subsystem to register them with the
kernel. It is necessary for some device types, such as NBD, for which
the kernel won't recognize partition tables on its own. (This also means
that partition-table recognition can be removed from the kernel and done
entirely in userland, if one so chooses).
The rest of multipath-tools is less useful in embedded systems, and so
is not included here.
