Fix unsafe variant initializer in _TryOSFromDisk

In case an OS has inconsistent declarations, we might get into a case
where one node reports a valid variants list (with OS API >=15), and
another node has OS API < 15, in which case its supported_variants gets
the default value of None. This leads to the same variable having
inconsistent data types, which leads to subtle bugs later: instead of
reporting something like "Inconsistent OS API versions", the LU exits
with a run-time exception. Furthermore, in another datapath, variants is
initialized to '[]' in case of OS diagnose failures.

The patch changes _TryOSFromDisk to initialize variants to '[]' for
OS api level below 15, and changes the variants calculation in
DiagnoseOS to be more readable.
