If a mount point is configured in both /etc/fstab and a unit file,
the configuration in the latter takes precedence.

Are there some unit files created by the installation process?
Perhaps that would be a better approach since they could be made
dependent on the specific Ethernet port that leads to the NFS server
being active.

The ethernet port which a specific nfs mount depend on cannot be set
always staically.
Dependencies are like this:
server FQDN -> server IP -> route to server/client IP -> client ethernet
port

The mount command itself invokes the DNS query to resolve the server
name thus you can't know before what route and finally which port will
be used.

Are you describing the dependency relationships that are explicitly made
clear in the SystemD units and target or are you describing what is
"hidden in the code" of the way pre-SystemD mount works?

Or maybe the problem Christoph has arises because this hidden code
hasn't been purged in 12.1 and has in Fedora-15 and is in conflict with
the SystemD way of doing things?
