debugfs: display the tested path and mount point of the filesystem, if known

While implementing the pure version of osutil.getfstype(), I noticed that MSYS
path mangling is getting in the way.  Given a path \\host\share\dir:

  - If strong quoted, hg receives it unchanged, and it works as expected
  - If double quoted, it converts to \host\share\dir
  - If unquoted, it converts to \hostsharedir

The second and third cases are problematic because those are valid paths
relative to the current drive letter, so GetFullPathName()/os.path.realpath()
will expand it as such.  The net effect is to silently turn a network path test
into (typically) a "C:\" test.  Additionally, the command hangs after printing
out 'symlink: no' for the third case (but is interruptable with Ctrl + C).  This
path mangling only comes into play because of the command line arguments- it
won't affect internally obtained paths.  Therefore, the simplest thing to do is
to provide feedback on what the command is acting on.

I also added the mount point, because Windows supports nesting [1] volumes (see
the examples in "Junction Points and Mounted Folders"), and it was a useful
diagnostic for figuring out why the wrong filesystem was printed out in the
cases above.
