Looks like the same problem as in bug 24055.

Exactly the same problem exists using an usb disk on key.
I guess this isn't hardware problem after all.

I want to apologize for thiss bug report.
As a kernel developer, I always use custom compiled kernels, and usually keep same .config file.

I completely forgot that to speed up the compilation I turned off all but MSDOS partition support.

Now I can create that partition map, however I see that I am not allowed to add/remove partitions. Maybe this is because I use 2M virtual device...
