You would have to use something other than "s" as that indicates the medium
source, but there are plenty of other options. Alternatively, something like:

mfd = mntopen("/path/to/old/mount", ...);

You would need some way to retrieve the fs type, though. Maybe the first
read() you do will return it:

char fstype[256];
read(mfd, fstype, 256);

ends up with:

"fs <type>"

in the buffer, though I think I'd prefer it to be manually elicited.

This is unnecessary as you can just do:

> fsmount(mfd, ...);

at this point to achieve the effect.

I haven't worked out this interface yet. I'm not sure it's actually necessary
at this point, though it'd be nice to have.
