Hi,

submount is an external kernel module which provides automounting 
functionality. It is currently under kernel herd but nobody there has 
interest in this package. I have had to fix it repeatedly in order to 
compile with newer kernels, it's broken again for 2.6.19 and I've had 
enough. Upstream appears to be dead as well.

If nobody steps up within a week it will go in package.mask for removal 
3 weeks later.

Suitable replacements for this package include the in-kernel 
automounter, hal, ivman.

Daniel
