[PATCH][master] Support installing to disk image files.



Patches 1, 2, 6, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, and 16 are just various cleanups.

Patch 3 fixes a bug in handling partitions on device-mapper disks.

Patches 4, 5, 7, 11, and 12 add support for installing to disk image files.

Some known issues:

 - There's no way to determine product name from liveinst for image installs.
 - There's no way to ensure the host system can run anaconda correctly.
 - There's no way to configure network devices for the installed system.
 - Already-active LUKS devices break devicetree.populate as of now, which
   renders anaconda-image-cleanup useless if you encrypt any devices in/on
   your disk images.

To create image files you can use dd or qemu-img (raw format). Then, to do
an install to the images, you would run something like this (after
installing the anaconda rpm):

LIVECMD="anaconda --image=/opt/disk1.img --image=/opt/disk2.img -m http://cannonball/install/rawhide/20101110/x86_64/os/"; liveinst
