Currently the blkdiscard has the ability to wipe out entere device in a
matter of seconds. This is fine as long as it's intentional, it is
potentially catastrophic if it's not.

With this commit blkdiscard will check for existing signatures on the
device and refuse to continue if any are found unless the operation is
forced with the -f option.

In an attempt to avoid breaking existing automation scripts the force is
only required when stdin refers to a terminal.

v2: Rename function to probe_device, use switch and free probe if no
    signature was found
