Bug Description

I have NFS shares defined in /ect/fstab, that mounted without problems in precise. In quantal, now and then during bootup, I get the message "<NFS share> is not ready for mounting yet". Left in that state, bootup waits forever, no matter if the NFS share gets available or not. Pressing "S" for "skip" immediately sobves the problem: Boot process resumes, and the NFS share is present after bootup is finished.

This looks as if the bootup precess does not recognize when the NFS share gets ready. This is a no-go on headless machines, where user interaction is simply impossible, because the user may be miles away. There is nobody to press "S" just to tell quantal to go on.

Instead, the boot process should continue automatically as soon as the NFS shares are available. Currently, it doesn't.

Please fix this so that headless bootup with NFS shares works reliably.
