From: Darren Hart <dvhart@linux.intel.com>

The current partitioning scheme leaves a 1MB gap between all the
generated partitions by adding a 1 to the end of the last partition to
use as the start of the next. parted is smart enough to not overlap
start and end positions of the same value. This avoids the 1 MB gaps.

Rather than pad the disk with 1MB in the beginning and cut it off at the
MB boundary on the end, we can use 0% and 100% to allow parted to do the
required math and use as much of the disk as possible.
