bug#10293: [PATCH] du -x should not count files in other file systems

While looking into Bug#10282 I noticed that 'du' is mishandling
the -x option.  It relies on FTS_XDEV to not cross file system boundaries,
but FTS_XDEV visits the root of the other file system, causing
'du' to output a line "0 X" where X is the mount point of the
other file system.  This doesn't sound right, since X is in a
different file system and du -x is supposed to ignore files in
other file systems.  Also, it disagrees with Solaris 10 du
(at least).

Here's a proposed patch.  The bug is absent from coreutils 5.0
and present in 5.2.0.  I'm guessing from the NEWS files that
it was introduced in 5.1.0 but 5.1.0 is no longer available
at ftp.gnu.org so this isn't trivial for me to check.

du: -x should not count files in other file systems
* NEWS: Document fix.
* src/du.c (process_file): Don't count files in different file
systems if -x is given.
* tests/du/one-file-system: Test for this bug.
