    But since filesystem detection isn't handled in the kernel, changing the
    link order is pointless. Please fix your /etc/filesystems instead.

    ~# grep camera /etc/fstab
    /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera auto users,noauto 0 0
    ~# strace -o mount.trace mount /mnt/camera
    ~# grep filesystems mount.trace
    open("/etc/filesystems", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 3
    ~# cat /etc/filesystems
    nodev proc
    nodev devpts

    Also check man 8 mount, specifically option -t:

    [...] Creating a file /etc/filesystems can be useful to change the probe
    order (e.g., to try vfat before msdos) ...

    This is from man-pages 1.66, btw.
