I have found the solution.
According to mount's man-page:
If no -t option is given ... the suberblock is probed for the filesystem type
(... ext2 .. iso9660 ). If this probe fails, mount will try to read the file
/etc/filesystems, or if that does not exist, /proc/filesystems.
Creating a /etc/filesystems can be useful to change the probe order .. or
if you use a kernel module autoloader.
Redhat have an "/etc/filesystems" and this is not updated when one add's a reiserfs. (or any other filesystem if you do not use a Redhat rpm). That means if "/etc/filesystems" exists "/proc/filesystems" are not probed. The soultion are simple - erase "/etc/filesystems".
LFS does not create this file and therefore "/proc/filesystems" are allways used.
IMO this could qualify to be included in a FEP appendix section.
Just to let you now.
