[PATCH rhel6 master] Warn the user when using a GPT bootdisk on non-EFI systems (614585)



I redid my previous patch for this which was, I think, too extreme. As Hans
points out some BIOS systems can boot from GPT so we shouldn't block that
completely. This adds a warning to the 'writing storage config' dialog,
allowing the user to decide to continue or go back and change things.

Here is a screenshot:

I have tested this with a single GPT disk, with a msdos disk and with 2 disks,
one being GPT and the other msdos.
