Though I wonder, since /etc/mtab is just a symlink. is the mount

really that is exactly what you want to do on your system. If our
mount command will still attempt to write to /etc/mtab once its a real
file again, maybe things will work for you as expected.
No. systemd is not compatible with /etc/mtab
