:Today I expanded my root hammer fs by a second device. The expand went
:flawless and except for some bogus numbers in df everything was fine.
:Problems began when I rebooted the machine: I ended up in a unusable
:system. I could not get mountroot to use the multi device hammer fs.
:So we should either have (sorted by ascending coolness):
:1) have a FAT warning in hammer man page to not expand the root file system
:2) have hammer expand check and refuse to expand the root file system
:3) have a mountroot that can handle multi device hammer fs roots.
Yah. I will add a check to the 'hammer expand' command itself and
have it refuse to expand the filesystem if it is also the root
