Bug#99837: boot-floppies: partition_config.c says no good way to detect reiserfs partition, here is a decent way

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 20010603
Severity: wishlist

Ok, nothing amazing, just that there is a "magic number" for reiserfs, just
like many other things.  at byte 0x10034 (65584) there is the string ReIsErFs
This should be pretty easy to check for, you just open the disk, seek to that
point, pull the 8 characters and strcmp it . . . maybee it'll help.
