Ah, shut yer trap.  It reads /etc/fstab from wherever the kernel is 
loaded from, and if /etc/fstab is hosed/can't be parsed, it'll fall back 
to trying to guess using the old algorithms.  The new behaviour is a 
functional superset of the old.

to be opponents, rather because the tasks and relationships force
people to take different points of view.  [Dr. Fritz Todt]
