* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - Automatically use existing EFI system partitions on Intel Macs as EFI
    boot partitions.
  - Create fat32 EFI partitions with the name "EFI System Partition" by
    default on Intel Macs.
  - choose_method/efi/do_option: Make sure no mountpoint is set.
  - Remove efi-modules dependency; it seems to be built into Ubuntu
    kernels now.
  - Require partman-base >= 129 to support a null value for the name.
  - Automatically mount the first method=efi filesystem we see on
    /boot/efi.
  - On x86 architectures, create EFI system partitions using FAT32 rather
    than FAT16, and require newly-created ones to have a minimum size of
    34091008 bytes.
  - Never format EFI system partitions that already contain a filesystem.
* Detect existing EFI system partitions more reliably on GPT partition
  tables (LP: #972122, #900245).

* On x86 architectures, create EFI system partitions using FAT32 rather
  than FAT16, and require newly-created ones to have a minimum size of
  34091008 bytes, experimentally verified as the minimum libparted will
  accept (LP: #811485).
* Never format EFI system partitions that already contain a filesystem
  (LP: #769669).

Be case insensitive on matching the name EFI System Partition when
detecting existing EFI system partitions.

* Automatically mount the first method=efi filesystem we see on /boot/efi.
  (This replaces previous code in partman-basicfilesystems, which didn't
  work since method=efi partitions don't have an acting_filesystem.)

* Drop lpia support.
* Only create a fat32 partition on Intel Macs; other compliant EFI
  implementations should (as I read it) be able to cope with fat16, and
  the 256MB minimum size of fat32 is inconvenient.
