Another problem of using os.path.dirname is that for /A/B, it will
return /A, and if /A is itself a symlink to a mount point itself, /A and
/A/B will have different st_dev values... which will be wrongly
interpreted as meaning that /A/B is a mount point.

So here is a possible course of action for ismount:
1- first test if the arg is a symlink and if so, return False (as it
already does today)
2- then use os.path.realname(os.path.dirname(arg)) instead of joining
with ".."
