Summary0000529: NETDATA detection in magic file 'ibm370' needx to be fixed.

the last record in the `ibm370` magic file deals with IBM NETDATA (or XMIT) file format. It reads.

0 string \x60\xe0\xc9\xd5\xd4\xd9\xf0\xf1 IBM NETDATA file

This is incorrect as the first two bytes of the first record of a NETDATA (XMIT) file are not necessarily fixed (they contain the logical record length (up to 255) and flags. In fact, it does not quite work (just a check some .XMI files from

The following is better at it just check the mnemonic of the first, mandatory, record.
# INMR01 In EBCDIC starting at offset 2
2 string \xc9\xd5\xd4\xd9\xf0\xf1 IBM NETDATA file

All the best
