reiserfs would showup in the module list in such case, but _not_ in
the fs list. KLive records both the modules loaded _and_ the mounted

This is the code that records the FS:

fs = {}
for _fs in ['^[^\s]+\s[^\s]+\s([^\s]+)', x).group(1)
for x in file('/proc/mounts').readlines() ]:
if _fs not in ['rootfs', 'proc', 'devpts']:
fs[_fs] = None
fs = ' '.join(fs.keys())
KERNEL += str_append(fs)

/proc/mounts only lists the _mounted_ fs, not the fs loaded into the
kernel statically or with insmod.
