-F FSType
Specify the FSType on which to operate. The FSType should

by matching the special with an entry in the table. If no
matching entry is found, the default file system type
specified in /etc/default/fs will be used.

verify and validate the command line. Additional information
obtained using a /etc/vfstab lookup is included in the
output. The command is not executed.
