On cm7 for some reason, the init.qcom.RC is what mounts the partitions. It mounts them as ext4. The ext3 partitions can be mounted as ext4 as well cause if you notice in tickerguys cm7 updater script he only formats system and maybe cache but it doesn't format data as ext4 but through the initram data gets mounted as ext4. But like on the intercept you could mount an rfs partition as ext2 or ext4 because they ain't compatible(rfs is based off fat) so you had to convert to one or the other. And an ext2 formatted partition can't be mounted as ext4 I believe. The updater script actually formats the partition, but with the initrc youcan choose what to mount so long as whatever the partition is formatted as can be mounted as that(I.e ext3 mounted as ext4).
Ahh ok. After a lot more looking through the files, I see the mount commands now. thanks.
