mount gets its information from /etc/mtab. When you do some mounts inside
and some mounts outside of chroot, it is almost inevitable that /etc/mtab
gets screwed up (because the mounts done outside of chroot don't appear in
the /etc/mtab from inside chroot and vice versa). One way to fix this is
to copy /proc/mounts to /etc/mtab after entering chroot.


This sentence no verb.
