System: NetBSD rumolt.teuto.de 1.4_BETA NetBSD 1.4_BETA (RUMOLT) #3: Mon Apr 26 23:52:52 MEST 1999 firstname.lastname@example.org:/a/usr/src/sys-i4b/arch/i386/compile/RUMOLT i386
I have /usr a symlink to /a/usr.
When I edited /etc/rc.conf after updating for the first time after 1.3.3,
I found critical_filesystems and didn't put anything in it, as /usr was
handled implicitly - no!
I got /etc/netstart.local failing because /a wasn't mounted, thus /usr/local
stuff couldn't be found and I ended up in single user.
check for the implicit critical fs being a symlink and traverse that before
calling islocalfs? Do so for every listed fs?
