I've tried it. mount with -t auto segfaults in the same way.
But I noticed interesting thing: when I then try to mount it for the first
time either with -t auto or not, I get the error immediately after entering
the command. But when I try it for the second time (again doesn't matter
specifying -t auto or not), I get debugging output from the mtdblock before
the error message:
bash# mount /dev/mtd0 /mnt -t auto
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0000000c
current->tss.cr3 = 01676000, %cr3 = 01676000
*pde = 00000000
Starting the third time and till reset, mounting /dev/mtd0 without
specifying filesystem type or with -t auto doesn't cause segfault:
bash# mount /dev/mtd0 /mnt
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
