Description

mount_cd9660 segfaults if you don't specify -L.

The code seems to be copied from mount_msdos, but FreeBSD has a
different code and argument in mount_cd9660. We should try to stay
close to FreeBSDs behavior.

Okay, I'll fix this.

Hey, why? It's confusing to have different options for the same thing. I mean -L
(mount_msdos) and -C (mount_cd9660). Can we have both in mount_cd9660 at least?
Pleeease.

They also have different semantics in FreeBSD. I don't know what is
better, I just know that they set a precedent, and we should have a very
good reason to break with it.
