Hi Bruce,

I absolutely followed the book, and have a running LFS system... this
was simply post-book tinkering...

Just to clarify, the existing init script already passes those
options... effectively all I did was add the -t option to the mount

That's fine to not want to support automounting the virtual
filesystems if they're not in /etc/fstab, but the point is the
existing init script *already* tries to do so... just in a broken way.
So it would probably be better to either remove the attempt entirely
and print a suitable error, or fully support it.
