disk: initialize name/part fields when returning a whole disk
When get_device_and_partition() finds a disk without a partition table, under some conditions, it "returns" a disk_partition_t that describes the entire raw disk. Make sure to initialize all fields in the partition descriptor in that case. The value chosen for name is just some arbitrary descriptive string. The value chosen for info matches the check at the end of get_device_and_partition(). However, it's probably not that important; it's not obvious that the value is really used.
