Please, take care with auto mounting of most partitions:
some of my serveur are Xen or kvm host. And some of their partitions
(mostly LVs) are used by running guest. These partitions MUST NOT be
mounted on the host. I even change /etc/lvm/lvm.conf so that PV
for guests are not detected (and activated) on the host.
