Yeah, I somehow missed this missing u. It works fine if I add it again.

Sorry, I should have been more specific than just saying it's broken.
It produces this output for me:

% umount -t
---- file system type
\#                 auto\'       following  mqueue    to
\#vfat             available    fuse       msdos     try

I see now that the gentoo /etc/filesystems has some lines in it with
comments, and the completer doesn't remove them. How about instead of

fss+=( ${$(</etc/filesystems)#\*} )

we use this?

fss+=( ${${${(f)"$(</etc/filesystems)"}:#\#*}#\*} )

Here, you can use - as the first element of tag-order as
zstyle ':completion:*:umount:*' tag-order - '! device-labels'
and device-labels will never be used, not even as a fallback.

I'm not even sure here what a device label is meant to be. I don't
suppose it's something mounted by LABEL=foo? My mount manpage mentions
partition labels, filesystem labels (and I know these are only
readable by root), and also 'those that are labeled "nodev"' appears.
