Is it possible to remount (i.e. mount -u) a network driver, so that I could change options ?
Currently I use enum-devices (in an embedded x86 board) to automatically find the network adapters and mount the drivers
appropriately. This works, but now I find that I need to adjust the priority of certain drivers (the driver priority=N option) based
on some user configuration performed in the field.
I would prefer to not have to throw out the enum-devices system (since it works most excellently) but I do need to change the
priority of specific drivers after they have been enumerated. If I could remount the drivers in question, this would suit my
purpose, but I can’t find any docs, and in fact, the mount utility says that “Some servers may not support all the mount options,
especially with respect to remounting and enumerating.”, so I have the feeling I may be out of luck here.
Is there any other way to change the driver priority after it is running ?
