Add MBR binary format support to the fq command line tool

a project by tobilehman

fq is an open source command tool used for formatting and inspecting binary data. It has a modular architecture that allows for adding support for all sorts of different binary data (e.g. MP4, BZIP2, ELF, etc.) While working on a legacy booting issue for Harvester HCI, I learned about the format of the legacy MBR (master boot record). I started adding support for it in this PR, but I haven't finished it yet. I am interested in better understanding the ways computers boot up so I can better understand what goes wrong when people try to boot Harvester (or relatedly, openSUSE).
