Ok, I just wanted to be sure that we weren't turning soft mounts
into hard mounts.  The only problem though is that you have
a weird failure mode now where the OS reports failure however
it may later succeed, I think this is OK, esp if Solaris does
it, but it is interesting.

Seems OK, Thanks for clarifying!
