I see that our first argument to mount is a const char now, (not sure when
it happened) and I'm porting some code from FreeBSD that does a switch on
the mount 'type' (first arg), which used to be an int, and still is for 

Any suggestions on a preffered way of recoding a switch/case block of
C, now that we have a const char there?
