Subject: [PATCH 16/27] block: use bdev_alignment_offset in part_alignment_offset_show

Replace the open coded offset calculation with the proper helper.
This is an ABI change in that the -1 for a misaligned partition is
properly propagated, which can be considered a bug fix and matches
what is done on the whole device.
