It would be nice if the various components of sysinstall do NOT have
different behavior than then regular system tools.  I'm talking
specifically about the fdisk portion which automatically use a fake
geometry, if the one it has seems wrong.  This is different from the
standard fdisk behavior (there is no "bad geometry" detection).

Ideally the fdisk and the fdisk portion of sysinstall would/will come
from the same piece of code, so that we have equivalent behavior
between the 2.
