Deprecate msdos partition scheme in favor of GPT
Open, MediumPublic

Description

We're defaulting to msdos/mbr partitions for most machines, and forcing GPT for disks >2TB on an ad-hoc basis. In 2019 we should default to GPT instead. This move will also pave the way to UEFI and help with standardizing partman recipes.
