Hi Alex, 

could you explain to me why fstab support is important? Is that for systems 
that do not use udisk/udev and the like?

The first part of the comment for the patch says "it never worked for me", 
which means this is not a regression fix. is that correct?

Also,is there an active reviewer for the patch? unless we're sure this patch 
can't make things worse I'm not very much in favor of picking it up so far.
