Amongst the flurry of commits from the l2k15 hackathon, Ken Westerback (krw@) has been hacking away on GPT support, and it's now enabled in the GENERIC kernel.

Eliminate kernel option GPT and associated #ifdef GPT/#endif. Let everybody get on the GPT bandwagon and we'll see what wheels fly off. Requested by & ok deraadt@
