Ultrium 6 emulation added.

Mark Harvey

As IBM have announced the release of Ultrium 6 drives, I've added pseudo support for Ultrium 6 in mhVTL.

So far, the media density is correct, however all other functionality is the same as Ultrium 5.

Support for more than one partition is still missing (i.e. ltfs support is missing).

Currently Ultrium 6 code is available via github only.

Any testing (with status reports) will be most welcome.

I've successfully tested using NetBackup 7.5.0.4.
