Actually, due to complaints about this issue, 0.5b mke2fs will zap the
boot sector when creates the filesystem.

Let me clarify something --- 0.5b is already released; if your
filesystem was created using 0.5b mke2fs, you won't need to worry about
the FAT magic number being present in the book sector.
