Bug #2674: GPT Support

* Author: ftigeot
* Status: New
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: 
* Target version: 
DragonFly currently doesn't have any GPT support in its installer, which makes it hard to install on > 2TB storage volumes.

Proposed roadmap:

1. Register some GUID partition types

  UFS and swap partitions could reuse the FreeBSD UFS and partition types
  New types are needed for HAMMER and HAMMER2 file systems

2. Add full-volume support to the installer

  The installer should be able to install DragonFly on a dedicated volume

3. Add partial volume support to the installer

  For people wanting to keep non-DragonFly managed data on part of a volume
