Hello Andries,

when /etc/init.d/checkroot.sh adds / to mtab it uses mount=A0-f to do
so. But if / has type auto in fstab, then it will have type auto in
mtab as well.

Here's a patch from Thomas Schoepf that seems to fix this problem. I
have tested it sucessfully with util-linux 2.12j and a ext3 fs on /.
