Hi!

The following patch adds support for Atari partition tables as used
on classic Atari computers like the Atari ST or Falcon as well
as the ARAnyM Atari emulator.

This patch was originally written by Guillaume Knispel in 2005 [1]
for parted 1.6.6. I have ported the patch to parted 3.2.x and cleaned
up the code.

With my changes to the patch, parted builds and runs fine and
I can create Atari partition tables and partitions in a disk
image file and use the disk image in ARAnyM running Linux/m68k
with byte-swapping enabled (as expected on Atari).

Running "make check" fails though as the testsuite tries to create
partition tables with sector sizes other than 512 bytes which is
not supported for these partition tables. Thus, it would be great
if someone could help me resolving this issue as well as otherwise
the code is working as expected.

Let me know what needs to be improved to get this merged!

Thanks,
Adrian
