If so, we can't make /sys. Some application uses /sys with sysfs on
kernel 2.6, you can't use such application in near feature.
However under such paranoid environment, the script should not stop.
/etc/init.d/mountkernfs uses "set -e". Even if it's failed with
special settings, there is no merit to tell the error. If mounting
filesystems (sysfs, usbfs, devpts, and tmpfs/shmfs) is failed, we
don't need to care. User will be noticed through with mount error or
So I would like to drop "set -e" from mountkernfs. debian-glibc guys,
