Re: [opensuse] What are these "devices" in my partition info?
On 2013-03-03 08:51 (GMT+0400) Andrey Borzenkov composed:

/dev/shm has always been there; cgroup is pseudo filesystem to
manage kernel Control Groups (collection of processes); others are
temporary volatile filesystems with content that is discarded between
reboots. So it is easier to make them memory-based than run script on
every boot to clean them.

Most of them are heavily used by systemd.

Why do they show up in default output of 'mount'? Seems like all those are nothing but obfuscatory when one wishes to see what user accessible filesystems (EXTx, FAT, CIFS, NFS, ISO9660, etc.) are mounted where and how.
