Add APFS filesystem to OSX runners

APFS supports sparse files in a similar manner as linux, which allows the allocation of large sparse files.  For users using osx to test projects using sparse files, this means that they don't have to worry about OS specific values for sparse file use.

    This would be incredibly useful for any projects which take advantage of the LMDB memory mapped database; since it utilizes spares files for backing its database.
