Ah, that's right... Parted doesn't support FAT12.  1.5.x
ped_file_system_probe() needs more information than just a simple
"yes" or "no" - it needs the size too.  So fat_probe() is calling
fat_boot_sector_analyse(), which doesn't support FAT12.

Is it a big disaster to not show FAT12 partitions?  (Parted can't
resize them anyway)  It would be possible to pull the relevant code out of
fat_boot_sector_analyse(), but it's non-trivial (i.e. ~20 lines)
