Subject: [PATCH] mke2fs: Use e4fsprogs programs if available.

On RHEL 5, mke2fs is ancient, and there is a non-standard "mke4fs"
binary which acts like the more recent mke2fs on Fedora.  Since there
are several annoyances and actual bugs in the ancient RHEL 5 mke2fs,
use mke4fs instead if it's available.
