Well what I meant was commit 80678bdd957cf49a9ccfc8b88ba3fb8b4c63fc12
makes gparted simply quit with error when trying to resize FAT, and
commit 5adae27101565a5d6fed4aadf28ddb39872e41f5 fix that but
introduced the issue I am reporting now. (Well actually, I CANNOT know
exactly which of them introduced it.)

Well yeah dosfstools does not provide any resizing tool. Funny thing
is not even Windows support FAT resizing in its disk management util
(but it support that for NTFS).
