Create a native utility for creating ext4 filesystems. Presumably the core of the functionality would be in libext4. Without this HelenOS installer cannot create ext4-typed initial ram disk nor root filesystem.

This should be integrated with libfdisk.

Currently sysinst creates a MINIX file system. The problem with this is the MINIX file system does not contain any instance identifier (e.g. GUID or serial number) nor a volume label, making it difficult for Volume server to identify it. FAT is slow, hence ext4 is the only viable choice.
