[ppc patch] fix Old World disk access

User-agent: Mutt/1.5.6+20040722i

This patch works around a bug in Old World Mac firmware. It allows "open" to
succeed but fails at least "seek" when disks are opened with a trailing ":0".
With the patch, we can get output like this:

grub> linux (scsi/sd,
Possible partitions are:        Partition num:0, Filesystem type Unknown
        Partition num:1, Filesystem type Unknown
        Partition num:2, Filesystem type Unknown
        Partition num:3, Filesystem type Unknown
        Partition num:4, Filesystem type Unknown
        Partition num:5, Filesystem type ext2

(The use of BAT mappings must be replaced before the kernel will boot, but
unfortunately that will have to wait for another day.)

        * disk/powerpc/ieee1275/ofdisk.c (grub_ofdisk_open): Do not
        append ":0" to devpath if the GRUB_IEEE1275_NO_PARTITION_0 flag is
        set in grub_ieee1275_flags.
