/etc/mtab shouldn't  be missing as of chap 6.6 Creating Essentila files and

"A proper Linux system maintains a list of the mounted file systems in the
file /etc/mtab. Normally, this file would be created when we mount a new
file system. Since we will not be mounting any file systems inside our
chroot environment, create an empty file for utilities that expect the
presence of /etc/mtab:

touch /etc/mtab"
