I believe this change causes no serious problem. It affects only
the case that there are two or more representations of the same
native path in the mount table.

strcasecmp is a locale-dependent function in ISO C. I don't want
to use it if it can be safely replaced with another function.  I
judged strcasecmp can be safely replaced with strcmp in this case.
