DOSFS format write MRB every time and clear partition data

This bug covers 2 problems in the format code in the DOSFS.

First, there is no way to format a partition without the MRB being updated. The MRB should never be touched unless the user has said it should be. Note this will change default behaviour but the current way is wrong.

Second, the MRB code should not touch the partition table. It should be left alone. This does mean RTEMS needs a partition editor.

The format command does not change the partition information.
