Warnings for unsigned firmware 7.0.2

New warnings have been added to inform users when an installed firmware is not signed by Fortinet. A warning message appears when logging in to the FortiGate from the GUI, and in the CLI when the uploaded firmware fails the signature validation. Additional messages appear in various places once a user is logged in to the GUI to remind them of the unsigned firmware.
