Aha!  That is the perfect function for this.  I didn't know the
existence of such function.

BTW, I'm not familiar with cygwin-mount.el but it sounds useful.  Is
there a reason why it is not included in emacs?  I rely on cygwin
because of its complete coverage and good maintenance.  However,
cygwin emacs is much slower and requires X emulation to have graphical
user interface.  I believe there is a good demand of using native
emacs (mingw/MSVC built) together with cygwin tools.
