Wrong partition device naming scheme

when creating a partition table and partitions in a Linux logical volume
(to be used as a virtual hard disk for qemu), e.g.
/dev/mapper/vg-disk, then parted automatically creates partition entries
like /dev/mapper/vg-diskp1, ..p2, and so on.

These partition entries are incompatible with other linux uses, e.g.
grub expects the usual scheme where just 1,2,3 (without p) is appended
to the base device name.
