Description of problem:
The creation regarding partitions' labels whose names are identical are erroneously allowed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create same Labels at installation phase or on already installed system and valid the configuration.

Actual results:
Fedora does allow for example the creation of RAID-arrays, but not only, whose partitions’ label’s names are identical both on installation phase and once system has been installed.

Expected results:
In any coherent OS and currently Linux-like distribution, attempts aimed to the creation of identical partitions’ labels are rejected as a feature due to the reason that partition labels only make any sense if they are different; only in that case they can properly and uniquely identify a partition.
