I have sent this to upstream (got an ack already) but might be good
to carry as SAUCE until it tickles back.

Subject: [PATCH] UBUNTU: SAUCE: bcache: Fix bcache device names

When adding partition support to bcache, the name assignment was not
updated, resulting in numbers jumping (bcache0, bcache16, bcache32...).
Fix this by taking BCACHE_MINORS into account when assigning the disk

BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1667078

Fixes: b8c0d91 (bcache: partition support: add 16 minors per bcacheN device)
