Comment (by bdubbs@…):

 The man page for fstab-decode says:

 "fstab-decode  decodes escapes in the specified ARGUMENTs and uses them to
 The argument escaping uses the same  rules  as  path  escaping  in
 /etc/fstab,  /etc/mtab  and /proc/mtab."

 Examples: fstab-decode umount $(awk '$3 == vfat { print $2 }' /etc/fstab)

 I have no idea what escapes are used in fstab.  The example awk command
 doesn't seem to work for me, even if I change vfat to ext4, and /proc/mtab
 no longer exists.  It seems like a useless command to me.
