Decide whether to delete apparently unused features and workarounds or reimplement them (e.g. LVM, autoinst.img/FDD, HDDFORMAT).

Delete AUTO_INST variable and floppy disk controller code. Also tried adding proper PFLASH drives: https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst/pull/754#issuecomment-389546857

It appears to work on x86 except that it always tries to boot from the installation media, whereas on the current version it starts booting from the drive after installation. Not sure if this is caused by me setting the pflash code drive as readonly, but including the vars in the code file. I have changed it to use the code file without a vars section so that it hopefully uses the vars to store the new boot order. On the other hand I may just need to set the hd as bootindex=0 and it will fallback to the cd drive to begin with, which might be what it is currently doing and I have reversed the order somehow.
In order to populate the pflash variables with the correct asset file path, I need to change OpenQA to recognize assets starting with PFLASH_ as HDD assets or just rename the variable to start with HDD (i.e. HDD_PFLASH_CODE).

Enabled snapshots under virtio VGA and updated code which disables them under NVMe. Remove code disabling them for raw disks, because it is possible to create qcow2 overlays of raw disks and I don't give people the option of creating creating raw overlays although it would probably work as well.
