Integrate the functionality of "fusermount -u" into umount

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


It is confusing that FUSE mount points need a different command to unmount them than everything else. Historically FUSE had to bring its own command, because traditional umount refuses umounting of mounts that are not in /etc/fstab for non-privileged users. But now that FUSE has become mainstream, I think it is time to integrate it better and get rid of the need for "fusermount -u". So my proposal is to either add the implementation of the "fusermount -u" functionality to mount, or let it execute "fusermount -u" as a subprocess for FUSE mountpoints. As root can already use umount for FUSE mount points, it probably doesn't need more than skipping the /etc/fstab test when umount is called on a FUSE mountpoint that is owned by the calling user.

Adding the maintainers of the affected packages (fuse and util-linux).

Are you sure this doesn't already work? I've got a fairly large setup with automount and many fuse (cromfs) filesystems, and using umount works very well.

Sorry, I missed the part about this being for a non-root userid.

Has there been any progress on this in the last four years? The mailing list thread starts promising and constructive, but then it suddenly ends.
