Although the recent floppy overflow for atari was gone, I expected

I propose to add NOPARTMAN option to sysinst(8), which drops extended
partitioning support provided by partman.c. If this option is enabled,
about 30KB is reduced for crunched binary for atari install floppy.
It should be useful also for old ports with sysinst(8).

It requires

- separate extended partitioning stuffs from menu.mi to
- 8 extra #if(n)def's

I've confirmed sysinst(8) with and without this option works on amd64.

Go for it.

Thanks, committed! How about this?
