Hi guys,

A new util-linux is in [testing].


* add to patches from upstream, in particular fixing
<https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/26059> and

* enable libmount

With libmount we get support for /etc/mtab being both a regular file
and a symlink to /proc/self/mountinfo. The latter is "the future", but
we won't force that as not all mount helpers (such as cifs, fuse, ntfs
and nfs) have been ported yet. If you don't use any of the unported
mount helpers, you can delete /etc/mtab and make it a symlink

I'd especially appreciate signoffs from people using the unported
helpers, and especially with the "user" mount option, or anything else
non-standard. There was a problem with this when we tried libmount
with util-linux 2.19.1, but I (and Dave) could not reproduce this with

Please test and signoff.
