I've checked in this patch with a couple of minor changes.

I renamed remove_cygdrive_info_to_registry to remove_cygdrive_info_from_registry.

I also renamed the umount option from --remove_cygdrive_prefix to

I also noticed that if you do a 'umont --remove-cygdrive-prefix' when
you have no prefix, the error message is less than helpful.  Could you
set an appropriate error message in cygwin so that a sensical error
message is produced by umount.exe?

Anyway, thanks for filling in this hole in cygwin functionality!  I
appreciate your efforts very much.
