maybe you could make them config options or just detect which filesystems
the user has selected in his .config from /usr/src/linux (or $KSRC)
That way if I decided I wanted to run the whole thing under ufs (for an
example, although I think ufs is read-only, isn't it?) or whatnot it would
still be mountable.
