If it isn't too much trouble, could the proposal be summarized?

If it is just that the / entry in fstab be ignored in favor of being
equivalent to one level above where the cygwin DLL was found, I think
that's a good idea.  That is actually sort of similar to the way the
linux boot process works.  The root is controlled by the kernel and the
entry in /etc/fstab doesn't really necessarily mean much.
