    The "/bin/mountpoint"-util appears to stat the mountpoint and it's
    parent directory and compares if they have the same device-no (st_dev).
    If they are different, then something is mounted.

    Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
    bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
    wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
    cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
