    sbin/fdisk_pc98      fdisk.8 fdisk.c 
  Fixes and new features:
  o Merge the -I switch from i386 verison to initialize the partition table
    to use the maximum amount possible for a single FreeBSD table.
  o Improve warning when the geom method fails (which I think it
    always will until geom_pc98 is updated to respond to this ctl message)
  o when writing out the boot sector, we have to write out a minimum of
    1024 bytes or the sector size.  This is different than the i386 case where
    we need to write out a minimum of 512 bytes (which is also the minimum
    sector size).  We already handle this difference on reading, but didn't
    in writing, so attempting to write a new partition table would fail.
  o Add MID to the -s output, since pc98 users are likely interested in
    both of these parameters.
  # I can now initialize disks on my pc98 machine either by -I or by
  # manually entering the parameters.  I don't know if fdisk -B works or not,
  # since I'm not willing to risk my only working boot disk to test it..
