Default util-linux-2.20-3

Hi guys,

A new util-linux is in [testing].

Changes:

* add to patches from upstream, in particular fixing
<https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/26059> and
<http://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=737091>.

* 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
manually.

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
2.20.

Please test and signoff.

Cheers,

Tom

What is the expected problem with fuse filesystems when /etc/mtab is a
symlink?
I have /etc/mtab as a symlink for quite some time, since I moved to
systemd, and haven't
noticed any problems with encfs or sshfs - both of which are fuse
filesystems

I guess you want to say /proc/self/mounts

NTFS and SSHFS mounting still works.

Signoff x86_64.

This should be /proc/self/mounts. Not mountinfo.

The problem would be with mount options that are not stored in the
kernel (so not in /proc/self/mounts). With libmount these are stored
in /run/monut/* instead, but if your helper does not use libmount they
will be lost. One example is the "user" option.

It might work fine depending on the options you use.

I do not use any of those helpers, but I will throw an i686 signoff your
way.

No issue for me with any of my FUSE filesystems.
