Log:
  MFC r306731:
  Document the history of fdisk based on the original post to comp.unix.bsd by 
Julian Elischer [1] and the Mach 2.5 Installation notes [2].
  I was unable to pin point the exact version of Mach the fdisk utility 
appeared as I could not find documentation older than version 2.5 & no source 
code or repo history.
  fdisk utility appears as a separate utility[3] in v2.5. Due to this, I have 
avoided stating the exact version fdisk first appeared in Mach.
  Add authors section.
  Make correction pointed by igor
