/etc/filesystems, or, if that does not exist, /proc/filesystems.
All of the filesystem types listed there will be tried, except for
those that are labeled "nodev" (e.g., devpts, proc and nfs). If
/etc/filesystems ends in a line with a single * only, mount will
read /proc/filesystems afterwards. All of the filesystem types will

Yes, interesting.

Firstly, all the file systems mounts in /etc/fstab are fully
specified, so this doesn't apply there.

Second, I have 'blkid' able to identify all my file systems, and,
as I've said, none are the mavericks such as minix, qnx4 etc.

I'm thinking that /proc/filesystems lists all the filesystems that can
be tried, or mounted, but not necesarily that their respective modules
are already loaded. Ie, the kernel must know what filesystem modules
it can provide support for.
