Default Bug#519800: Acknowledgement (FSTYPE=ext3 but only ext2 in ramdisk possible with MODULES=dep)

Actually, how about running fstype when generating the ramdisk to find
out which modules you need (either in addition or instead of looking
at the output of mount/fstab).

I dislike the idea of a ramdisk generator deliberately ignoring
something I've explicitly expressed in /etc/fstab.

Well, then look at fstype in addition to the output of mount/fstab.
The point is that the system won't boot if you only look at the output
of mount/fstab.

Fine with me. My comment was driven by your "or instead of" alone :-)
