Prasad Joshi - Sept. 3, 2011, 8:33 a.m.
If an entire device used for file system creation, the mkfs.ext2/3/4
asks for confirmation before proceeding. Since the device is
configured for testing it is safe to assume positive response
during mkfs.

The patch also replaces hard coded mkfs path with MKFS_PROG variable.

Thanks for submitting a patch, Prasad (and Chaitanya).

Can you please re-submit this?  Based on feedback what
we're looking for would be:
[PATCH 0/2] description e-mail
[PATCH 1/2] patch that substitutes /sbin/mkfs with ${MKFS_PROG}
[PATCH 2/2] patch that adds a '-f' flag to ${MKFS_PROG}.${FSTYP}
            for all ext* filesystem types.

Thanks.

					-Alex

Oh, and while I'm thinking about it...

/sbin/mkfs.${FSTYP} and ${MKFS_PROG}.${FSTYP} are most likely
incorrect.  The switch to MKFS_PROG at least finds where the
mkfs executable lies, but in theory anyway there is no guarantee
that, for example, the mkfs.xfs program lies in the same directory.
The mkfs executable uses the PATH (via execvp()) to find the
filesystem-specific mkfs program to use, and I expect we should
work the same way.
