[OpenWrt-Devel] [PATCH] x86: fix platform_export_bootpart() for Xen virtual disks

From: Alexander Dahl <alex at netz39.de>

Virtual disk devices in a Xen virtual machine (DomU) can be /dev/xvda,
/dev/xvdb and so on with partitions like /dev/xdva1. Devices named like
this where not considered before. This resulted in a non working
sysupgrade, because the boot partition could not be found.

Tested with Gluon v2016.1.x and Freifunk Magdeburg firmware on a
Debian Jessie amd64 Xen host. See:
