for all of the items that were there before the upgrade

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade

This apprently is the new functioning for kudzu and filesystem components.
Filesystem removes /mnt/cdrom and /mnt/floppy and expects the kudzu
to create them BUT what I found out is that if /etc/fstab already contains lines
for cdrom and floppy kudzu does not do anything. The way I solved the problem:

1: Login as root
2: Edit /etc/fstab and delete lines containing cdrom and floppy
3: Run /usr/sbin/updfstab

You'll than see the directories under /mnt created. I believe this is a BUG
of kudzu.

I just did an upgrade from 7.1 to our latest tree and I can't reproduce this
