This seems to violate POLA. Would something break if it was changed to use mount_xxx (unforunately, I'm ~ 200 km away from my -current box at the moment, so I can't try it myself)? > I > had guessed this would be a problem when I read the commit message > for revision 1.7 of mdmfs.c, but then I forgot to mention it to > Dima. > > Here is a patch that should help - it makes mdmfs accept "mount_mfs" > or "mfs" to trigger compatibility mode instead of mount_*. The problem with this is that in a bikeshed far, far in the past, some people wanted to me able to call it "mount_md" instead of "mount_mfs". Of course, we could allow "mfs" and "md", but that seems rather ugly (what if someone wants "fish"?). I'd rather see mount(8) use mount_xxx, although if we think that would break something, your patch is probably the best solution.
