       mtab - mounted file system table

       Mtab  resides  in directory /etc and contains a table of devices mounted by the mount com-
       mand.  Umount removes entries.

       Each entry is 64 bytes long; the first 32 are the null-padded name of the place where  the
       special	file is mounted; the second 32 are the null-padded name of the special file.  The
       special file has all its directories stripped away; that is, everything through	the  last
       `/' is thrown away.

       This table is present only so people can look at it.  It does not matter to mount if there
       are duplicated entries nor to umount if a name cannot be found.
