[blivet][master/rhel7-branch] clean up hiding/unhiding of disks

The first patch is mostly unrelated, but here it is anyway. It is not
intended for rhel7-branch at this time, but the others are.

The other four are all related to hide/unhide as used by anaconda for
disk selection. They tighten up management of relationships between
devices and the devices that contain them when adding and removing
devices from the tree, whether it be part of registering an action or
hiding a disk. The biggest piece is patch 3, which restores relationships
between lv and vg, or partition and disk, when canceling actions that
removed the lv or partition. Patch 5 is especially nice now that we are
hiding zram devices on every entry to the custom spoke -- without these
patches your previous custom layout would be wiped out upon entry to the
custom spoke since hiding the zram device would cancel all registered

David Lehman (5):
  Do not allow modification or removal of protected devices.
  The first format destroy action should obsolete any others.
  Improve handling of device removals/additions from the devicetree.
  Cancel actions before hiding descendent devices.
  Only cancel actions on disks related to the one we are hiding.
