SubjectPATCH - Software RAID Autodetection for OSF partitions

Here's a quick patch that I wrote-up for 2.4.10-pre5 (should work with
other 2.4.x kernels too), so that the OSF partition code should
auto-detect partitions with a fstype of 0xFD (software RAID).

It seems to work for me, except that the software RAID code in 2.4.10-pre5
(both with and without my patch) keep dying with superblock errors on line
1574 of md.c. If anybody knows how to fix this error, please let me know
:).

Thanks,
-Dustin
