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
application error.

So I would like to drop "set -e" from mountkernfs.  debian-glibc guys,
any objections?
