custom installation on GPT partitioned disks refers to Primary & Logical partitions

ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

1. Boot ubuntu-14.04-desktop-amd64.iso in a Virtual Box VM using UEFI.
2. Installation type: something else
3. click New Partition Table button
4. click free space then + button

Result: The "create partition" dialog contains a "Type for the new partition" distinguishing between Primary & Logical partitions.

Expected: Since this is UEFI installation, GPT partitioning is used, and therefore there's no such thing as Primary and Logical partitions. So this whole section of the UI shouldn't be present.
