[Bug 1056726] systemd doesn't pick up all new mount points after fstab update

(In reply to Martin Wilck from comment #10)

because udev synthesizes change events at close-after-write. That's what the
partitioning tools and the mkfs tools do. A change event will be synthesised
after the FS is created, systemd should see the device unit matching a
configured mount unit, and mounts it. That's what actually happens, except
... sometimes.

At the time mkfs tools are used, the block devices should be "ready" already so
the device units should already have switched to the "plugged" state. And
that's this transition which really matters to systemd.

Since the whole stuff works asynchronously this might be working but I don't
think fstab should be used for this purpose.
