This check 

        case `df -T ${WORKDIR}` in */dev/md[0-9]* | *tmpfs*)
                echo -n "`basename $0`: "
                echo -n "${_WORKDIR_bad2}"
                echo ${WORKDIR}
                exit 1

is IMHO not necessary and even harmful. It prevents from updating a chrooted system mounted from a disk image. Could we reconsider and remove it?
