SUMMARY: tags column in prtvtoc and format

the tags and flags are remnants from the ancient days of Unix
when there did not exist something like /etc/vfstab.  The mounting
mechanisms that parse /etc/vfstab will ignore any tags/flags.

Except for root and swap, the tags are largely ignored.

format can be used to change the tags.

its ok to use fsck before mounting but is not necessary

thank you so much to the following:
