Default Bring auto discovered drives online before parsing the ks file

While doing some tests with iscsi and kickstart I noticed that currently
drives discovered through ibft (iscsi), edd (fcoe), or configured in the
rclinux script (zfcp), can not be used in kickstart's clearpart or
ignoredrive commands. This patches fixes this.

Note that the 3 added startup calls or complete no-ops on systems without
ibft / edd-fcoe info / pre configured zfcp.
