Bug Description

util-linux needs config.{guess, sub} updating for arm64 and also a on-line patch for fdisk in order to buld for arm64

patch attached. All of this should be upstream (an autoreconf would fix the autoconf config stuff more thoroughly).

affects: libsepol (Ubuntu) → util-linux (Ubuntu)

The part of the patch on fdiskbsdlabel.h does not seem correct, it lacks a || before the newly added defined(__aarch64__)

I'm dropping the config.guess/sub stuff; util-linux already calls autoreconf in its build target, so it's unnecessary.
