Not sure about *that* mountpoint in particular, but a forest of
"invisible" tmpfs mounts is present in the XO image because we use
"stateless" Fedora.

This allows olpc-update to work its magic.

I am fully aware it's somewhat controversial (and very confusing until
you understand WTH is going on). Just 'splaining :-)

BTW, "controversial" here is an invite to search in the list archives
for colourful and informative discussion; not for flames. :-]

Similarly, olpc-update is quite controversial, but as seen in a recent
thread between dsd and me, it is easier to criticize than to replace.
