Perhaps I missed a comment early on in this discussion, but would it not be reasonable to let someone performing an update know during the initial phase update when it looks to the existing software to let them know their file system will not load afterward, and point to the remedy, should they need it? I am in total agreement with the comments previously that expressed concerned about someone updating a perfectly functional system and having it fail without explanation upon reboot.

I have run into this enough times to feel comfortable with it being part of a standard update process.

And yes, I do read as much as I can prior to updating an OS, or any application. I have customers and reputation with them I'd like to preserve. However, there are some things that I, and many others, take for granted, and file systems are one of them. So, I for one, might have missed this little tidbit of information.

Yes, you missed it :-)

The basic idea is to detect those filesystems listed in fstab, and not blacklist those. It is more convoluted than that, but better than me trying to give the exact and correct explanation is for you to seek it in the thread ;-)
