Subject: [PATCH] mount.nfs - hide EBUSY errors.

Linux only returns EBUSY for a non-remount mount if the exact
requested filesystem is already mounted.  Arguably this is not an

"mount -a" tries to see if each request filesystem is already mounted.
Sometimes it get it wrong - e.g. hostname aliases can confuse it.
So "mount -a" will report a failure "already mounted", which is
wrong because it should filter those out.

An each fix it just to be silent about EBUSY.  As the requested
result (a given filesystem being mounted at a given location) is in
effect after the EBUSY return, we can just treat it as success.
