Right, this is well documented, but unrelated: I'm talking about
mounting the Apple_bootstrap partition as /boot under GNU/Linux, not
changing its type to Apple_HFS.

??? I mean /boot under GNU/Linux.  I don't want to mount it under Mac OS
X (except maybe manually if I need to fix a problem that prevents
booting into GNU/Linux).

Is that still relevant today?
