altmbr: cap at 439 bytes so the partition select byte follows
Cap altmbr at 439 bytes, so that the partition select byte is not part of the file. This means that: a) updating the altmbr doesn't clobber the configuration; b) it is easier to simply concatenate the select byte to the file. This also matches gptmbr behavior. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
