VBoxManage xxx --variant should fail for unsupported variants => Fixed in SVN

Description

VDI images do not support --variant Split2G but the parameter is accepted and ignored. Fail instead with a clear error message.

The only format which supports Split2G seems to be VMDK. This is probably also true for the variants Stream and ESX.

concerned subcommands: createhd, clonehd and convertfromraw
