Some NVIDIA Tegra devices store partition table on a boot eMMC partition,
and thus, partition-scanner should read out partition table from the boot
block device without assigning found partitions to the block device. The
new disk flag allows MMC core to enable boot partitions scanning, without
changing the old behavior.
