I just remembered another part of the reason for the difference
in what is displayed.

Mageia 2 is following the upstream recommendations to replace
/etc/mtab with a symlink to /proc/mounts,

If you replace /etc/mtab with the symlink in Mageia 1, you'll
see similar output from df, with the exception that it doesn't
have the tmpfs filesystems added for systemd.
