Mount by label is all user space, there is no kernel code involved,
beyond reading data out the block device interface to look for the
magic numbers. You need a version of the mount command with this
support in it for the code to function.
I am using mount-2.10m-6 but I have to admit I have not tried a mount
by label recently.
