    Add partitions/aix.h and partitions/aix.c.
    
    AIX LVM permits to make "logical volumes" which are made of multiple
    slices of multiple disks.  The new code allows only access to the
    "logical volumes" which are made of one slice on the probed disk, a
    slice being a contiguous disk area.  The code also detects "logical
    volumes" made of multiple slices on the probed disk, but can not
    describe them to the partition layer, because the partition layer
    generic code does not support that.  When such non-contiguous "logical
    volumes" are detected, a diagnostic message is printed.
