Subject: dracut: add warning when including unsupported modules

With self-built kernels (often used for debugging by both internal and
external development), it's a common mistake to not set up
Module.supported properly. As a result, modules can end up without the
supported tag. "make install" will happily build an initramfs, via
dracut, that will not boot due to the kernel refusing to load the
unsupported modules.

This patch adds a --check-supported option to check whether all modules
added to the initramfs are marked supported and warn if they are not.
It will not cause the initramfs creation to fail.

The option is intended to be called via /sbin/installkernel, which will
check to see if the kernel has CONFIG_SUSE_KERNEL_SUPPORTED before using
the option.

+**--check-supported**::
+    The kernel may be configured to check whether a module is
+    supported by the vendor before allowing it to be loaded.  On these
+    systems, it's possible to generate an initramfs image that will
+    fail to boot due to unsupported modules being refused.  This
+    option enables a check that will issue a warning if a module built
+    without the support option enabled is encountered while building
+    the image.  Use of this option assumes that the kernel requires
+    supported modules and will issue a warning on every module if used
+    otherwise.
