[Libguestfs] [PATCH] New API: blkid_type - get the Linux VFS driver for a mounted device



This call wraps up some functionality of blkid so you can get the
Linux VFS driver for a mounted filesystem.

For example:

  $ guestfish --ro -a /dev/vg_trick/Win2003x32 -m /dev/sda1 \
    blkid_type /dev/sda1
  ntfs

Rich.
