[PATCH 2/3] bootstrap: Fix partition creation

bootstrap_read_devfs() registers a partition with DEVFS_PARTITION_FIXED.
The purpose of this flag is that the partition can't be removed later.
Removing the partition is exactly what bootstrap_read_devfs() does when
finished, so remove the DEVFS_PARTITION_FIXED flag which doesn't make
sense here.
