partitions: enable EFI/GPT support by default
The Kconfig currently enables MSDOS partitions by default because they are assumed to be essential, but it's necessary to enable "advanced partition selection" in order to get GPT support. IMO GPT partitions are becoming common enought to deserve the same treatment MSDOS partitions get. (Side note: I got bit by a disk that had MSDOS and GPT partition tables, but for some reason the MSDOS table was different from the GPT one. I was stupid enought to disable "advanced partition selection" in my .config, which disabled GPT partitioning and made my btrfs pool unbootable because it couldn't find the partitions) Signed-off-by: Diego Calleja <diegocg@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>
