Summary: macfs and macostools tests fail on UFS

Initial Comment:
Two Mac-specific tests (macfs and macostools) will fail if 
'make test' is run on a UFS volume.  macfs fails since 
SetDates() doesn't affect all timestamps for UFS like it does 
on HFS+.  This causes GetDates() to return unexpected 
values, hence the failure.

macostools fails for similar reasons, but related to forks, 
since UFS doesn't have any.

Not sure if this is something to be fixed (few use UFS) or 
should simply be pointed out in documentation.

Modified the macfs and macostools doc to reflect various amounts of 
workingness on UFS partitions... :-)

I'm moving this to doc and mentioning it there.  MacOS X generally 
doesn't work on UFS, and it's unclear as to whether apple will continue to 
support it anyhow, so I'm not sure we should spend the time fixing this.
