Ha, the normal settrans here is really only settrans -a, eg setting the
active translator.  When setting fakeroot as a passive translator, it fails
as with --chroot.

Maybe the way netfs_root_node is looked up in the passive translator case is
screwed?  I set a breakpoint at netfs_demuxer, and a "chdir fakeroot-test"
gave me three fsys_getroot RPC in sequence before it failed with ENOTDIR.
And when following the call, it seems it ended up calling fshelp_fetch_root
on the "transbox" whatever that again is.

Thanks,
Marcus
