gvm just calls mount on the device. So there must be an fstab entry for
the devices that is mountable by the user. 

A generic way to automagically add new devices to fstab is in gvm's
upstream TODO. Although it's a little out of gvm's scope imho.

Any circuit design must contain at least one part which is obsolete, two parts
which are unobtainable, and three parts which are still under development.
