block: make add_partition() return pointer to hd_struct
Make add_partition() return pointer to the new hd_struct on success and ERR_PTR() value on failure. This change will be used to fix md autodetection bug. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Neil Brown <neilb@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
