In many ways a mountnoncrit would be the best solution, but that
would would require some significant work since we'd probably need to
add an extra fields to fstab (though it might be feasible to have
a list of critical file systems and try to mount them explicitly
instead).  A small bit of additional care would be needed to insure that
early_late_divider was set correctly in either case.
