root – the root file system


The syntax #/ is illegal, so this device can only be accessed directly by the kernel.

This device is set up by the kernel to be the root of the name space. The names in the one–level tree are mostly just place–holders, to allow a place to bind(2) to. The exception is /boot, which contains /boot/boot and any files /boot/boot might need. The kernel does an exec(2) of /boot/boot when initializing.
