SubjectPATCH for 2.4.3 - tinny mount code cleanup (kernel 0.97 compatibility)
The attached patch is fixing georgeous "backward compatibility"
in the mount system command. It is removing two useless defines in
the kernel headers and finally doubles the number of possible
flags for the mount command.

Please apply.

If there are any line count difference warnings when applying this
patch to the vanilla 2.4.3 tree- then please bear with me,
it's only due to the fact that I preffered to edit this patch by hand
out form some other...

Thank's in advance.
