I do not know but here is a guess. Wouldn't any user mount be that of
the current user? Isn't that the point of user mounts - I only see my
own? And if I'm root, I only see system mounts?
And if you want to see the user mounts of individual users, according to
the UG <http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/using.html#mount-table>, that
should be in </etc/fstab.d/user_name>.
Otherwise, what about the following?
$ stat -c %U /mount_point
But if you are talking about, something that happened before a cygwin
process was lanched, I think you want to use the word "mapped", not
"mounted" and I can't say much more than that.
