Subject[PATCH] fix for idiocy in mount_root cleanups.
	Grr...  OK, that should be a lesson - never do obvious change
just before sending a patch.

Change in question was s/do_mount/mount/. Which is almost
the same thing, except for one little detail: mount(2) in case of
error returns -1 and stores the error in errno. do_mount(9), OTOH...

IOW, please apply the following and pass me a brown paperbag ;-/
