mkfs.xfs checks for known filesystems and partition types so it can
warn the user if they may be overwriting existing data, this check
does not include Apple partition tables.   the following patch adds a
check for mac partition tables to libdisk.

i have tested it on both big and little endian systems, it works as
expected.
