I don't have that line in fstab, but it doesn't matter. I know how to make
it mount automatically, as long as I know what device the kernel sees it
as. And actually I prefer mounting things manually, so that I know. I
guess in their quest to making things look/behave more and more like the
"other" OS, developers have made the life more difficult for people who
want to know what's under the hood.
