sadmin solidify fails on nonexistent entries in mtab/fstab

Ubuntu 14.04 has a ureadahead version that leaves an non-existing entry in mtab which solidify is unable to ignore.

the entry:
tracefs /var/lib/ureadahead/debgugfs/tracing tracefs rw,relatime 0 0

The directory /var/lib/ureadahead/debgugfs/tracing does not exist. The entry in mtab is not changeable as to my knowledge, because the ureadahead update that fixes it requires Ubuntu 15 or newer.

How do i make "sadmin solidify /" ignore non-existing entries in mtab/fstab? How do i tell it to only use the root mount-point and to not parse the mtab?

You can try the Sadmin Skiplist -s <path> to specify folders you do not want solidified.
