Some virtio blocks definitely have no partitions and should not be scanned.

GENHD_FL_NO_PART_SCAN is not used much in other drivers. This makes me
wonder if the same use case is addressed through other means with SCSI,
NVMe, etc devices. Maybe Christoph or Jens can weigh in on whether
adding a bit to disable partition scanning for a virtio-blk fits into
the big picture?

Is your goal to avoid accidentally detecting partitions because it's
confusing when that happens?

VIRTIO is currently undergoing auditing and changes to support untrusted
devices. From that perspective adding a device feature bit to disable
partition scanning does not help protect the guest from an untrusted
disk. The guest cannot trust the device, instead the guest itself would
need to be configured to avoid partition scanning of untrusted devices.

Formatting cleanup and rephrasing:

  /* Disable partition scanning for devices with no partitions */

I suggest user a more obvious name:

  VIRTIO_BLK_F_NO_PART_SCAN

I'm really confused what the use case is here.  GENHD_FL_NO_PART_SCAN
has four users:

 - the block core setting it for hidden devices, for which the concept
   of paritions doesn't make sense.  Looking back this should have never
   used GENHD_FL_NO_PART_SCAN, and instead the partition scanning code
   should just check GENHD_FL_HIDDEN as well.
 - mmc uses it for boot partitions and rpmb.  I'm not even sure how
   these can be exposed as block devices as they don't require block
   granularity access IIRC, but if the allow block layer access there
   is no reason to ever set these flags.
 - loop is a bit of a mess.  IIRC the story is that originally the
   loop device did not support partitions, then in 2008 support for
   partitions was added by partitioning the minor number space, and
   then in 2011 support for partitions without that parameter was
   added using a new flag in the loop device creation ioctl that uses
   the extended dev_t space added since.  But even that might be
   something we can handled without that flag without breaking the
   userspace ABI
 - m64card sets it for no good reason at all

In other words: in a perfect would GENHD_FL_NO_PART_SCAN would not
exist, and it certainly should not be added to a new driver, never
mind a protocol.

For RPMB, we have converted them into char devices, thus
GENHD_FL_NO_PART_SCAN is never set for them. The code needs a cleanup
to clarify this.

When it comes to eMMC boot partitions, those can be read/written to as
any other block device. Although, it's unlikely that they need
partitions as they are usually very small, 512Kb or 2MB in that
ballpark. At least, that was the thinking behind it when we added
GENHD_FL_NO_PART_SCAN for them.

If you want to drop GENHD_FL_NO_PART_SCAN for eMMC boot partitions, I
don't think it will be an issue.

Perhaps that could be configured in the image, for example in the kernel 
command line?

Thanks for your remark. I guess it is possible, I will try to rewrite it 
that way.
