TRIM pass down to encrypted disks

With this change Fedora becomes more friendly to SSD drives. During the installation procedure, any newly created storage with LUKS encryption (newly formatted encrypted partitions, logical volumes, and so on) is configured to use the discard option which enables TRIM. This potentially increases the lifetime of SSD drives while not affecting encrypted data security and it has no effect on HDDs.
