Following patchset implements some improvements and cleanup for the
GPT booting code:

patch 1: Simplify the gpt detection code with lesser scopes and add

patch 2: Introduce 8byte LE helpers: x at -le and x!-le

patch 3: As we need to detect FAT partition, implement a helper that
	 can be used both from GPT code and "fat-bootblock?"

patch 4: Implement GPT FAT for LVM suport and make GPT detection code

Changelog v3:
* Dropped patch for renaming "block" variable
* Fix bug in seek-pos updation code

Changelog V2:
* Optimize gpt detection code
* Fixed stack comments
* Rename verify-gpt-partition, as it was doing more than that. Added

  disk-label: simplify gpt-prep-partition? routine
  introduce 8-byte LE helpers
  disk-label: introduce helper to check fat filesystem
  disk-label: add support for booting from GPT FAT partition
