gunixmounts: Fix /proc/self/mountinfo monitoring

/proc/self/mountinfo is used to monitor changes of mounts with libmount.
However, GFileMonitor is used currently to monitor this file, which
doesn't work and consequently "changed" signal is never emitted. Special
monitoring needs to be used instead, same as it is used for /proc/mounts.
