It looks like this isn't possible because while udevd is running during
%pre, the installer hasn't loaded the kernel modules for disks and what
not so there aren't any relevant block devices up yet.

Maybe it'd be feasible to inject a script into a partman directory, but
this is probably more trouble than its worth.
