found some time and implemented the check as we discussed it. It surely
cuts codesize! ;)

The main check is done in /etc/mtab instead of /proc/mounts, this is
because /etc/mtab contains real ( or followable ) names, while
/proc/mounts can be quite cryptic. I have collected a few mtab files
from different configs and haven't found any problem thusfar.
NOTE: rootdevice is included in this check!

The algorithm:
- get minor/major from the partition to be checked
- get mounted partitions from file* and compare major/minor numbers
- if they match return 1 else 0

* in this case, file can be /etc/mtab or /proc/swaps (swap is not listed
in /etc/mtab)

I hope it'll do fine ;-)
