Well this is the problem, since I'm trying to mount the volumes from fstab
when mount is called, how would I go about getting /proc mounted after /
is mounted read-write, but before vgscan is run?
Have /proc mounted with a separate command in rc.S after / is remounted rw
and before vgscan is run?

Are there other alternatives, like removing unused emtries in /dev, to cut
down scan time (as was mentioned on this list earlier)?
