This can get you into deep water - when the OS is updated, it is
generally written to the /boot directory.  If you have a separate
/boot partition that is not mounted, your /boot will get updated all
right, but it's not the /boot partition that will be affected.

This is a dangerous idea unless you *always* remember to mount your
/boot before doing an update.
