	(mount_info::read_mounts): Remove unneeded access argument. Use 
RegEnumKeyEx to enumerate mount points in 	current registry location where 
each key name returned is a posix_path mount location. Use a subkey reg_key 
to 	read the posix_path's corresponding native_path and flags.
	(mount_info::from_registry): Access HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE registry with full 
access privs (which will fail if 	not administrator).

Now non-administrator users will not inherit global mount table... Do you 
remember _WHY_ I introduced global mount table?
