    services: file-system: Filter what goes to /etc/fstab.
    
    Fixes a longstanding issue whereby, due to our long fstab that included
    pseudo file systems like cgroup mounts, graphical file managers would
    display all of these.  Initially reported at
    <https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-guix/2017-11/msg00084.html>.
    
    * gnu/services/base.scm (file-system-fstab-entries): New procedure.
    (file-system-service-type): Use it to extend FSTAB-SERVICE-TYPE.
