  eject tries to umount wrong device

Status in eject package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When trying to eject a scsi tape, "eject" instead tries to first
  umount the wrong device, then dies:

  kubuntu-18) eject -s -v /dev/st0
  eject: device name is `/dev/st0'
  eject: expanded name is `/dev/st0'
  eject: `/dev/md0' is mounted at `/'
  eject: unmounting device `/dev/md0' from `/'
  umount: only root can unmount UUID=dfbecd63-3f4b-4323-8dc4-a6f8b584eea5 from /
  eject: unmount of `/' failed

  So when checking if /dev/st0 is mounted, "eject" found the incorrect
  entry in mtab.
