[PATCH 2/2] Define _PATH_MOUNTED as "/etc/mtab"

From: Justus Winter
Subject: [PATCH 2/2] Define _PATH_MOUNTED as "/etc/mtab"
Date: Thu, 15 Aug 2013 10:43:35 +0200

Change the definition of _PATH_MOUNTED to "/etc/mtab". This is the
value used on Linux.

The change is motivated by the fact that on Debian /etc/mtab is a
symbolic link to /proc/mounts. This patch adjusts the macro for
non-linux systems such as Hurd. Changing this using
sysdeps/mach/hurd/paths.h causes build problems because
/usr/include/hurd/paths.h is shadowed by this file. This change is
proposed in the hope that aligning the non-linux targets with the
glibc for Linux is perceived as a good thing while fixing this problem
on Debian/Hurd along the way.

* sysdeps/generic/paths.h (_PATH_MOUNTED): Change value to "/etc/mtab".
