Bug Description

Right now after partitioning the disk we have a sleep(3) to avoid the #device is busy problem, but that's not the right way to avoid this kind of problem, a better way to do it would be to check with fuser or lsof whether there's any process holding the device or if it's free (not busy).

    Fix workaround for the "device is busy" problem

    Right after partitioning, we have a sleep(3) to avoid the "device is
    busy" problem. A less error-prone solution is to check with fuser,
    whether there is any process currently using the disk.

    The following config options are introduced under the 'disk_partitioner'
    - check_device_interval: seconds between consecutive checks for the
    device status
    - check_device_max_retries: number of retries for checking the device
