Hey Andrew,

So you're proposing to do it the other way around? Instead of getting a
path and look for it in /proc/mounts, you take paths from /proc/mounts,
get their major/minor and compare this to the major/minor from the
selected partition.

This sounds nice! very efficient, but wouldn't we be getting problems
with some strange entrys like your /dev2/root2 or rootfs ? 
rootdevice again :)

Of course we could always check the rootdevice indepedently from the
other partitions.

Please, let me know if this is what you had in mind!
