1Upstream-Status: Inappropriate [embedded specific]

3The FHS indicates that /etc must be capable of being mounted R/O.
4
5The FHS also indicates that lock files belong in /var/lock, and /var must
6be R/W as soon as possible during boot.
7
8This patch moves the mtab lock file from the potentially R/O /etc, to the
9R/W /var/lock area. This lock file is used when mounting disks and making
10other mount adjustments. The _PATH_MOUNTED_TMP is not adjusted, as failing
11to write to this file does not cause any functional limitations.
12
13(Note, if /etc is R/O, then /etc/mtab should be a symlink to /proc/mounts)
