libguestfs: trace: vfs_type "/dev/sda1"

libguestfs: trace: vfs_type = "ntfs"

Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2015-07-14 04:59:35 EDT
This is correct behaviour.  As part of the condition for
getting libguestfs-winsupport added to base RHEL, we had to
drop unsupported use of libguestfs-winsupport, such as mounting
Windows disks in general.  See:
