I thought it was already detailed enough: first and last hunks useless
if patch is applied are:

Such hunks are workarounds at the moment because hurd mounts paths by
keeping superfluous '/' and '.' in pathnames if specified at mount
time, which need to be specified at umount time as well to umount

Patch simply makes mount/umount utilities fix through realpath
mountpoints/device pathnames to pass to settrans, making workarounds
above useless.
