#246: Installer modifying disk partitions table when installing on existent
partition

 Priority:  minor        |   Milestone:        
Component:  Installer    |     Version:  8.0-RC

-------------------------+--------------------------------------------------
 When installing PC-BSD on an existing disk partition (slice) the installer
 nevertheless touches the disk partition table.
 When listing the partitions with fdisk -l in linux afer the installation I
 have a "partition does not end on cylinder boundary" message which I did
 not have before the installation.
 I know that FreeBSD has some tradition in seeing disk geometry its own way
 but when installing FreeBSD on an exisiting disk partition (i.e. slice) it
 leaves the partition table unchanged. So probably the PCBSD installer
 could also in this case leave the partition table alone.
