You are quite correct.  It is possible to get entries with no drive letter
into the mount table, and they will even work (sort of).  However, ISTR a
discussion a month or so ago about the woes of doing this sort of thing,
e.g., switching to another drive and trying to access such mounts, so I
suppose we should just consider these mounts invalid, anyway...

BTW, I noticed that I accidentally reversed the patch.  Sorry.  However,
patch should be smart enough to detect this.
