  - Rewriting the .spec files to obsoletes mkdosfs-ygg for new dosfstools.
  - initialization of spec file.
  - 2.2 :
   - Added dosfsck/COPYING, putting dosfsck officially under GPL (Werner
     and I agree that it should be GPL).
   - mkdosfs: Allow creation of a 16 bit FAT on filesystems that are too
     small for it if the user explicitly selected FAT16 (but a warning
     is printed). Formerly, you got the misleading error message "make
     the fs a bit smaller".
   - dosfsck: new option -y as synonym for -y; for compability with
     other fs checkers, which also accept this option.
   - dosfsck: Now prints messages similar to e2fsck: at start version
     and feature list; at end number of files (and directories) and
     number of used/total clusters. This makes the printouts of *fsck at
     boot time nicer.
   - dosfsck: -a (auto repair) now turns on -f (salvage files), too. -a
     should act as non-destructive as possible, so lost clusters should
     be assigned to files. Otherwise the data in them might be
     overwritten later.
   - dosfsck: Don't drop a directory with lots of bad entries in
     auto-repair mode for the same reason as above.
   - dosfsck: avoid deleting the whole FAT32 root dir if something is
     wrong with it (bad start cluster or the like).
   - general: also create symlinks {mkfs,fsck}.vfat.8 to the respective
     real man pages.
