patch to possibly fix automounting

Although I am not sure of what all the issues in automounting are, this patch
seems like a good start.  I seemed to work in very linited usage

The patch applies the user-options after the default options and this has caused
problems in the way I am using it.

On Red Hat 9 I found that specifying mount options at the end were ignored.

Specifically this involes a USB memory key with a vfat file system. I was using
the "umask=077" option and it was ignored until I put it before the entire string.

The option combiation that didn't work is:


The option combination that worked fine is:

I would like to stress the importance of this enhancement. Since each
write wears on a flash memory, USB drives reallly should be mounted
with then option 'noatime'

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2005-03-31 21:59:13 UTC
As updfstab is no longer used in current releases (removable media mounting is
done via HAL, fstab-sync, and gnome-volume-manager), changes to updfstab will
almost certainly not be addressed.
