Summary0000215: identify NeXT filesystems
DescriptionNeXT systems use a dedicated filesystem format based on UFS, it'd be useful for file to identify it properly. There's a straightforward magic string right at the beginning: "NeXT" for v1, "dlV2" for v2 and "dlV3" for v3.

The format is documented in a few places:
http://homepages.cs.ncl.ac.uk/nick.cook/csc2025/minix/3.2.1/usr/src/sys/sys/bootblock.h (search for "next68k")
https://opensource.apple.com/source/IOStorageFamily/IOStorageFamily-44.3/IONeXTPartitionScheme.h (search for "dl_version")
