The .mount units created by these fstab entries are noops. Furthermore,
the fstab entries cause systemd-remount-fs to be called and potentially
do something (but we definitely don't want that). Adding anything to
fstab has no benefit, but the potential to cause problems.

OMG, this is shit. This needs to be (mostly) reverted.

This replaces the normal getty at .service by our autologin at .service, which
causes autologin on all terminals. This is definitely not intended.

We don't want to replace getty at .service with autologin, we only want to
start autologin on tty1.

Pierre, why are you doing last minute changes to things you clearly do
not understand properly?
