Description Karel Zak 2005-07-19 10:27:15 EDT
FC3, FC4 and upstream use:

It was rejected directly before RHEL4 GA. I think we can use it now. The patch
is already in CVS by Ellliot.

util-linux/RHEL-4/util-linux-2.12a/fdisk$ grep 0xbf *
i386_sys_types.c:       {0xbf, N_("Solaris")},

I used same label like upstream in last versions (see FC4). It means "Solaris"
rather than "Solaris VTOC".
