I have tested remounting slash with the current cygwin DLL snapshots
and a new mount.exe binary. If you try to replace an existing mount
(like slash), you will get the existing mount busy warning. By
specifying the -f flag (force), mount will happily overwrite any
existing mount point, including slash.
Again, only in recent development snapshots.
