Default loader ks=bd:... and kickstart driverdisk/harddisk --biospart support


As discussed some time ago, while replacing the isys.c edd
parsing code with python code, I found out the C code had
to stick around as loader needs it.

Since the C code has a few limitations, I filed a bug to
asking for these limitations to be documented:

R. Landmann, our doc writer then asked for more information
on these options as currently they are not documented at all.

So I looked at them again, and ks=bd:.... seems to be
supported in loader, and loader also knows about the following
kickstart directives:
harddisk --biospart
driverdisk --biospart

But pykickstart does not know about the harddisk directive at all,
and also does not know about driverdisk's --biospart option.

So does this mean that these options simply don't work (and can be
removed or should be fixed) ? Or does this mean that pykickstart
complains but does not error out on the unknown harddisk command
/ driverdisk option, or ... ?
