It's not quite that simple.

when we do

        *mp = *t;
        /* break; */

we are pointing the mp string pointers at the strings in the getmntent entry,
which will keep moving as we iterate.  We'll need a strdup or something
to copy it out on each good find, with appropriate frees etc, I guess.

Is there a better way to do it?  This seems pretty ugly.

        memset(mp, 0, sizeof(struct mntent));
        while ((t = getmntent(fp))) {
                if (mpref->mnt_fsname) {        /* device */
                        if (stat64(t->mnt_fsname, &ms) < 0)
                        if (s->st_rdev != ms.st_rdev)
                if (mpref->mnt_dir) {           /* mount point */
                        if (stat64(t->mnt_dir, &ms) < 0)
                        if (s->st_ino != ms.st_ino || s->st_dev != ms.st_dev)
                /* This one matches */
                found = 1;
                mp->mnt_fsname = strdup(t->mnt_fsname);
                mp->mnt_dir = strdup(t->mnt_dir);
                mp->mnt_type = strdup(t->mnt_type);
        return (found);

(and then free the strings in the caller when we're done ...)
