gunixmounts: Mark mounts as system internal instead of filtering out

mntent-based implementation filter out mounts with device path that was
repeated. Consequently, it is not possible to show such mounts in UI even
with x-gvfs-show, because they are not returned from g_unix_mounts_get.
libmount-based implementation currently doesn't filter out any mounts
which causes issues to our volume monitors. Let's rather mark mounts
which don't point into fs root as system_internal. This approach won't be
affected by mount order as is mntent-based implementation. It will mark
more mounts as system_internal than it is filtered out with mntend-based
implementation, but there will be always possibility to show them in UI
over x-gvfs-show, which was not possible with mntend-based. We can
probably introduce some improvements later to not mark unique mounts as
system internal even if they don't point into fs root...

* to not mengle those mounts with the "regular" mounts (i.e. which points to
* the root). But because those mounts usually just duplicate other mounts and
* are completely ignored with mntend-based implementation, let's mark them as
* system internal. Given the different approches it doesn't mean that all
* mounts which were ignored will be system internal now, but this should work
* in most cases. For more info, see g_unix_mount_get_root_path() annotation,
