Ideally, the mount command would print information, or where to read more.


The mount command doesn't have that context. It calls mount(2) and the
kernel requests that userspace load the module. Then mount(2) returns
-ENODEV, which is documented in the mount(2) man page as "file system
type not configured in the kernel." If the module isn't loaded, the
module doesn't register as a file system type, and then there's no
difference between "mount -t sadlksjadlk" and "mount -t jfs".

mount(8) can't attempt to load the module itself since it may not have
privileges to do that even if it weren't blacklisted.

Understood.


We can definitely document the blacklisting case in the mount(8) man
page, though. It's probably possible to link with libkmod and check if
the module was blacklisted, too.

That would be nice, thanks :-)
