You don't have to change anything for that: the mount table is stored in
the Windows registry and is used by the Cygwin DLL to convert Windows to
POSIX paths/filenames and back. Just setting the mount table up correctly
is enough (and as cgf kindly pointed out, there is no magic involved for
that - just running mount will work).
