I booted the image you sent me to the hard drive I use for
development.  Nice work.

I have one note.

If we fill all of the fields in the FIS partition entry,
e.g. including the data_length, I will set APEX to honor it.  If the
value is zero, it will copy the whole partition as it does now, If the
value is not zero or 0xffffffff, APEX will copy only the length of the
data within the partition.
