Subject: [PATCH v2] proc: Escape more characters in /proc/mounts output

When a filesystem is mounted with a blank name like so:

 # mount '' bad -t tmpfs

its name entry in /proc/mounts is blank causing the line to start
with a space.

 /mnt/bad tmpfs rw,seclabel,relatime,inode64 0 0

Further, the name could start with a hash, causing the entry to look
like this (leading space added so that git does not strip it out):

 # /mnt/bad tmpfs rw,seclabel,relatime,inode64 0 0

This breaks getmntent and any code that aims to parse fstab as well as
/proc/mounts with the same logic since they need to strip leading
spaces or skip over comments, due to which they report incorrect
output or skip over the line respectively.

This fix resolves both issues by (1) treating blank names the same way
as not having a name and (2) by escaping the hash character into its
octal encoding, which getmntent can then decode and print correctly.
As far as file parsing is concerned, these are the only additional
cases to cater for since they cover all characters that have a special
meaning in that context.

Changes from V1:
- Break out a separate routine copy_mount_devname for device name copy.
- Rename copy_mount_string to copy_mount_type since it is now single
  use.
