I just commited a config, command line and SDL GUI option for this.

From command line one can set (single) GEMDOS HD drive letter or ask
Hatari recognized partitions to skipped.  In SDL GUI one cannot set
the  drive letter, just select whether Hatari recognized partitions
are skipped or not.

Skip is good default e.g. with EmuTOS, which doesn't require any
additional ACSI or IDE driver.

GEMDOS HD is now by default C: and assigning it to something that
already has ACSI/IDE partition results only in warning, not disabling
GEMDOS HD emulation for that drive.

Did my earlier change fix this too?
