[Bug 227548] RPI-B msdosfs partition should be bit larger


            Bug ID: 227548
           Summary: RPI-B msdosfs  partition should be bit larger
           Product: Base System
           Version: CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: arm

Currently the msdosfs partition on RPI-B SD card images is 17MB, and is 74%
full.  It's enough to boot, but a bit too small when you want to experiment
with different firmware ('bootloader') releases, and there's no easy way around
it, apart from recompiling the image myself.

Raspbian uses 41MB partition on their release images:

=>     63  9666497  md0  MBR  (4.6G)
       63     8129       - free -  (4.0M)
     8192    85611    1  !12  (42M)
    93803     4501       - free -  (2.2M)
    98304  9568256    2  linux-data  (4.6G)

I propose to increase our size to the same value.  (FIWIW, theirs is 51% full,
they use 21MB of it).
