growpart: Fails for disk symlinks (e.g. /dev/disk/by-id)

Bug Description

When growpart is called on a disk symlink, it fails with an error similar to the following:

    # growpart /dev/disk/by-id/google-disk-name 1
    FAILED: failed to get start and end for /dev/disk/by-id/google-disk-name1 in /dev/disk/by-id/google-disk-name

This occurs because the partition device path in /dev/disk/by-id is to add "-part1" rather than just "1" so the awk expression for finding the partition start/end does not find the partition.


P.S. I have a fix which will be sent in a merge request shortly.
