Hi Christoph,

How about following patch. This applies on top of your patches. I noticed
that Al had suggested to return number of filesystems from helper
functions. I just did that and used that to iterate in the loop.

I tested it with a virtual block device (root=/dev/vda1) and it works.
I also filled page with garbage after allocation to make sure natually
occurring null is not there in the middle of page to terminate string.

If you like it, can you please incorporate it in your patches.

Thanks
Vivek
