filesystem column for used space both indicates absolute and relative space

Bug #1489064 reported by Karl-Philipp Richter on 2015-08-26

Bug Description

The column indicating the used space both indicates the absolute space in form of the number label and the relative space in form of the progress bar. This doesn't make sense and it'd be nice for the user to be able to sort by relative and absolute used/free space. Thus, it'd make sense to split the label with the number and progress bar into two sortable columns.
