    Stop checking for 'ntfslabel --new-serial' support · 1b172646

    The oldest supported distributions have these versions of ntfs-3g /
    ntfsprogs.
    
      Distro             EOL        ntfs-3g / ntfsprogs
    - Debian 8           2020-Jun   2014.2.16AR.2
    - RHEL / CentOS 7    2024-Jun   2017.3.23
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS   2019-Apr   2013.1.13AR.1
    
    The oldest version of ntfs-3g / ntfsprogs on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS includes
    support for the --new-serial option.
    
        $ ntfslabel -V
    
        ntfslabel v2013.1.13AR.1 (libntfs-3g) - Display, or set, the label for an NTFS Volume.
    
        $ ntfslabel --help | grep -- --new-serial
                --new-serial   Set a new serial number
    
    Therefore it is no longer necessary to check for this option as it is
    always available.  The worst case scenario is that some how an old
    version of ntfslabel is used which doesn't support this option.  In such
    a case GParted goes from not supporting changing the UUID to claiming
    support, but presumably it would fail with an error reporting unknown
    option when applied.  Arguably better from an end user support point of
    view.
