one other thing... something i keep seeing, boxes with tonnes of /u???
directories, where each /u??? is a mount point.. urggg... strangely
these boxes usually have oracle installed.
or even worse, sometimes these weird mount points are not used
directly, instead the sysadmins create sane names by symlinking in /
to these weird /u??? dirs, eg /foo -> /u01. why?
mount(2) is mechanism to create a sane namespace and to hide the
details of the underlying storage from the namespace. why deliberately
go out of your way to fsck this up?
