It sounds like a good idea to me. I found the current values being used in
a few places.
Just passing the value through.
Extracting the value from a string.
I'm not sure where the string is created, possibly path.cc.
Converts bits in flags to string ("user" or "system").
Prints whatever it finds in mnt->mnt_type.
Uses current values of mnt_type several places.
Converts m->issys to string ("user" or "system").
Tests p->mnt_type for current values.
It looks like the main confusion would come from people parsing the output
from cygcheck or mount and expecting the current values of "user" or
