* [PATCH] devfs: Do not create overlapping partitions

Until now it has been possible to create overlapping partitions. Go away
from that and allow to create partitions only in unallocated areas of a
device. This lowers the risk of having inconsistent partitioning and
increases the chance that inconsistent partitioning is recognized by
the user.

We had explicit overlap checking for the environment partition which
becomes unnecessary with this change and is removed.
