I'm walking my way through the Linux from Scratch HOWTO, and testing my
new filesystem against a pre-built UML 2.4.0-test9 kernel. This means I
can avoid rebooting my system about every 10 minutes as I go, but now I
have to wonder--can I mount the host partition directly from within UML?
What I mean is, the user-mode kernel and root_fs I'm working on exists on
/dev/hda1, as does the source for all other packages I'm compiling (I'm
trying to avoid storing the package sources on the user-mode filesystem
because I'm trying to keep it small.) So from within user-mode-linux, can
I simply do a `mount /dev/hda1 /mnt` and expect no hassles, or am I
risking filesystem corruption?
Thanks for the input.
