I've added an extra / mountpoint in /etc/fstab in order to be able to
access C: without /cygdrive like this:
none /cygdrive cygdrive binary,posix=0,user 0 0
none / cygdrive binary,posix=0,user 0 0
It seems to work, I can access the C: drive with just /c.
But normally an "ls /cygdrive" should list the drives, whereas "ls /"
lists the contents of the Cygwin root. So it seems there are now two
root mountpoints overlaying each other.
So I was wondering if my approach is if this is technically undefined
behavior and might conceivably break something or is it OK (less the
drive listing limitation mentioned above).
