This is related to the question I asked on the cygwin-developers list ( ).  Maybe
people can discuss it here...

Basically, Cygwin's getmntent() returns either "user" or "system" as the
fstype, whereas on other systems (Linux, etc) the fstype is the type of
the filesystem (cdrom, nfs, local, etc).  I was proposing a change to make
the user/system distinction part of mnt_opts, and set the type field to
whatever's returned by GetVolumeInformation().  This method is called in anyway, to distinguish Samba filesystems...
