extended partitions are currently registered with their full size which
means they overlap with the logical partitions therein. Since 7f9f45b9bf
("devfs: Do not create overlapping partitions") we no longer register
overlapping partitions, so the logical partitions are no longer
accessible. Fix this by reducing the size of the extended partition to
two blocks (1kiB) which is the same as Linux does.

Fixes: 7f9f45b9bf ("devfs: Do not create overlapping partitions")
