[plug] Run command before mount

Hello PLUG community.

I have a situation on a Debian 8.0 machine whereby I require a command
(specifically partprobe) to be run right before mount runs and reads

In the following StackExchange article, one responder suggests putting the
commands and/or binaries inside of the initrd image itself (can anyone say,
possible dynamic library issue?) , but that seems a bit too extreme. The
same article also suggest using dmsetup, but I have not had to use dmsetup
in this particular configuration:


Can anyone offer any advice as to the best way to go about such a task?

I have also noticed that Debian's init system has changed and running my
own scripts via the old system doesn't seem to apply any more.

Thanks in advance.
