Ahh, yes.

We've had this before. We've gotten rid of the actual "use system
calls", but we still have some of the init sequence in particular just
calling the wrappers instead.

And yes, ksys_mount() takes __user pointers.

It would be a lot better to use "do_mount()", which is the interface
that takes actual "char *" pointers.
