what is the root filesystem mounted as??

Editing /etc/fstab on a laptop and comparing dmesg between boots shows
no change to how the ext4 filesystem is mounted.

I suggest that /etc/mtab is created from /etc/fstab, and the root
filesystem was mounted by initrd before /etc/fstab is available, and
that /etc/fstab is ineffective.
