Sign fixes for disklabel(8)

Here are the diffs to allow disklabel to correctly create partitions 1TB (up to 2TB is useful with UFS2) pending a different partitionning scheme. It also allows you to correctly make smaller partitions beyond 1TB which is nice if you don't want to waste 800GB on an array :-) permission to

I do have one question re: UFS2, not specifically about this change however.. I notice that the fields of the disk structure are signed. Wouldn;t it make more sence at this early stage to declare them as unsigned? For example take this snippet from struct fs int64_t fs_size;
