Missing support for building to partition from MacOSX/Darwin

hrev30234 There is currently no way to build Haiku directly to a partition from Mac OS. Some part seems to be missing (i think where it figures out the geometry of the hard disk) in src/tools/fs_shell/unistd.cpp, since there are ifdefs for every platform except Darwin.

The attached patch adds support for geometry detection on Mac OS X.
The system does not seems to provide a way to get the disk geometry directly ; I used Darwin's fdisk source code as a reference to calculate them from the disk size.
This allows building Haiku to a partition, at least on my hardware.

Thanks! Applied in hrev30289. I enforced the 80 columns per line limit, though.
