    I don't get this. From "man getmntent" it seems that getmntent is just a
    parser for /etc/mtab, and that you must call "setmntent" with the
    filename you want to parse.

    So if you do "setmntent("/etc/mtab",...)" you're explicitly saying that
    you want getmntent to use /etc/mtab. This is just a open/read in disguise.

    Am I missing something?
