[master/rhel7-branch] Deprecate RUNKS cmdline option. (#1040933)

Historically, one would enter RUNKS=1 and cmdline as boot parameters in
order to use non-interactive kickstart. However, since we no longer have
loader, RUNKS is rather redundant now, so render it a no-op by removing
the couple instances where we checked it in anaconda.

Based on a patch by Jan Stodola <jstodola at redhat.com>

Resolves: rhbz#1040933
