ROOT(3) 										  ROOT(3)

       root - the root file system


       The syntax is illegal, so this device can only be accessed directly by the kernel.

       This  device  is  set up by the kernel to be the root of the name space.  The names in the
       one-level tree are mostly just place-holders, to allow a place to bind(2) to.  The  excep-
       tion  is  /boot,  which provides executable code when read.  The kernel does an exec(2) of
       /boot when initializing.
