Default booty patches (of doom)

As previously mentioned, I've been hard at work merging booty back into
anaconda. The patch set to do that is currently pretty large, so I'm
not going to mail it to the list. However, it's all available here:


These patches include the anaconda fixes I mailed previously, plus a
couple new ones, plus all the booty stuff. Yes it's a little bit
jumbled together but when it's time to merge, I can do the
cherry-picking as necessary to make sense of it all.

What works:

- Installing a bootloader in the basic LVM and non-LVM cases.
- ???

What needs testing:

- Upgrades.
- Dual boot.
- Non-x86 architectures.
- The package-related aspects.

What I still want to do:

- Merge a lot of this stuff into the platform module.
- Investigate some sort of template system for the bootloader
- Work on kickstart integration.

This is mainly being posted now as a courtesy to everyone else so they
can continue development without being stuck by booty errors. I do not
consider this final mergable stuff.
