Autoloading should not be in 'core'. normal.mod an also work without
autoloading. So I want fs-auto.mod which will contain all test of
filesystems which are known at compile-time. Or, when such test can be
specified in some reasoable format, then fs-auto.mod should provide only
a function to execute this test (nearly same code as in 'file', but
simpler). We need not to determine fs exactly, we need only know that we
should try to load specified module. If this works not, then it's on
user to load the module (manualy or by grub.conf).

The format should be something as /etc/magic (or
/usr/share/misc/file/magic), but without the stuff about number of
heads, sectors and so on. If 'magic' of one filesystem can be written on
one line, we can have one file about autoloading as I decribed before.
