I don't remember why this is there, but not it comes immediately before
upgrade.  Therefore, I think it might be upgrade related.  Since we're
not doing anything with upgrades in anaconda anymore, this wouldn't be
needed.

This is hard, because we won't be able to determine what's USB media
until storage probing is done.  That could be at any time - the user
could be on some spoke.  Do we just pop up a dialog as soon as we've
found things?  That could look pretty awkward.

I wonder if we should tell the user to provide some command line
parameter next time they start up anaconda, and we could key on the
presence of that parameter to put the user at some point they can't go
past while we probe.
