Added X: reboot/poweroff option to clicknclone menu
added function f_partdiskinfo() to display extra disk info
to hopefully make sure correct disk/partition is selected.
Currently just used on Clone selection, but could be added

a full released version, and have compiled the 3.08, but didn't
add it image or test it yet.
busybox 1.19.3 2011/10/29
changed part_info2 code to get 15 characters possible for device.
added code to not call part_info2 function if /dev/cciss device
is available since fsarchiver probe has an issue in reporting
that needs to be studied further.
Added -e 's-!-/-g' to change cciss!c0d0p0 to cciss/c0d0p0 and others
in part_info2.
Added fsarchiver probe -v and added the uuid to the listing
Added code to add disk serial number for disk if reported by hdparm
FIXED an error in main script. Missing % that caused partonly to fail...
Removed kernel 2.6.33.19 to make room

Added M: option to Utility menu to test partitions using f3write and f3read

G4L 0.39 Alpha 19

Fixed missing % in script that caused an error when displaying diskonly or partonly listings.
The partlist that includes disk and partitions worked fine, and was test with option H. But open N failed because of the error. So, just inserting a % before the s corrected the problem.

G4L 0.39 Alpha 17

Have had an issue with an user with a cciss disk controller, and have gotten some valuable feedback from the author of the fsarchiver program. Have done a few alphas to resolve the issue, and with 17 have added the display of the uuid to the partition listing. Will have to see if it is really a good addition or not.
