Mostly it doesn't seem to make a difference, but I do have one device
(a GPS) that doesn't handle memory cards with a partition table.  Ubuntu
doesn't properly handle the card if it doesn't have one, but it's only a
minor problem.  It mounts both the entire device and partition 1 (e.g.
/dev/sdb and /dev/sdb1), but otherwise has no problems using the card.
