I join a diff, code is untested (Gtk-Parted is still broken due to
libparted 1.3.x port), modifications should also be applied
to disk_pc98, but I don't know how much this architecture
(is it the right word?) differs from a standard PC.

the problem is that if part is NULL, you can't know on what disk type
you wan't to add the partition... and so you can't know
what flags are available.
maybe direct use of disk->type->ops->partition_is_flag_available()
should be better, or this call could also be in a
ped_disk_is_flag_available(PedDisk *disk, PedPartitionFlag flag)
