Hmm, doing this alone is wrong.  The result will be that newly installed
disks will have no mbr boot code and thus will not be able to boot.

It is neccessary to change fdisk to initialize the boot code in the mbr
automagically if it isn't valid yet.

I'll check in an appropriate fix for this in a minute.

Doing the pullup for this will probably be a bit tricky, as there
have been some post-1.3 changes in fdisk that most likely should not be
in any 1.3.x patch release.
