wic: allow creation of partitions not in table
For some architectures it is necessary to reserve space on disk without it being present in the partition table. For example, u-boot on i.mx is placed at an offset of 1kB on the sdcard. While it would be possible to create a partition at that offset and place u-boot there, it would then be necessary to update the default u-boot environment to use partition 2 on the mmc instead of partition 1.
