I'm mounting a snapshot using mdconfig, then mount like this:

mdconfig -a -t vnode -f /home/.snap/4 -u 0
mount /dev/md0 /snapshot/home

mount (with no args) shows this:

/dev/md0 on /snapshot/home (ufs, local, read-only)

# mdconfig -l -u md0
md0     vnode   23503425 KBytes

How can I see (to verify) what file md0 is based on?  Perhaps this
should be part of the mdconfig -l output?

Furthermore, could we have that info when we run mount (with no args)
and df?  Or might that break something that depends on their output?
