When mount.sh does its thing, it loads expressly stated mount points
first (swap and /); then mounts things in the order they are listed in
the fstab. That bears repeating:
Things are mounted in the order they are listed in the /etc/fstab file.
If you mount /var/run and /var/lock tmpfs (as is the default with our
distro), then try and mount /var on a different partition later in the
sequence, you will get errors.
If this doesn't work, let me know.
