What I expect to happen:
When unmounting a CIFS share, I expect /etc/mtab to be updated to
reflect the current status of the system (i.e. that that mountpoint is
no longer active).
What actually happens:
umount.cifs works in that the mount is detached, and no longer shows up
in /proc/mounts. However, the stale entry is left in /etc/mtab, which
makes the output of the 'mount' command misleading at best.
