Summary:                    problem with large fdisk partitions
Description: 
System: Familiar Linux 0.8.1 snapshot, running on an iPAQ 3955.

Running Busybox's fdisk on a 1GB SD card creates a valid partition table,
but putting a filesystem > 256MB on any partition results in Busybox's
fdisk being unable to read the partition table (tested for ext2, ext3,
reiserfs). Likwise, if the card is formatted on a desktop with regular GNU
fdisk, Busybox's fdisk can't read the partition table, which shows up fine
in GNU fdisk. The upshot is that the partitions with filesystems can't be
mounted via Busybox. Any partitions created that are < 256MB are
automounted and work normally, although df -h gives incorrect information.

Please provide detailed information about the exact layout you are using
(verbose dumps with e.g. sfdisk or the like) and attach the MBR of the
affected block-device.

Also please provide an example how you created a filesystem.
