libparted-fs-resize: HFS/FAT file system resizing library

>From NEWS:

   parted provides a new library, libparted-fs-resize, for resizing
   HFS+ and FAT file systems.  This is the subset of the FS-manipulation
   functionality removed in parted-3.0 for which we have found no free
   alternative.  That library provides only these entry points:
   so when using it you must also link with libparted.

Feedback welcome, the sooner the better.

On testing, there is a single new test that resizes a FAT
and an HFS partition, then checks each with fsck.vfat and fsck.hfs
respectively.  Unfortunately, as noted in comments, fsck.hfs
segfaults, at least with the version in Fedora 16.  See the comments
in tests/t3000-resize-fs.sh for where to get a working program.
