Coming back to this, is the ideal approach here (1) wchristian's patch
at the above link (2) some kind of SKIP tests if short paths aren't
present (3) add a probe for ntifs.h and add support for retrieving
FILE_FS_PERSISTENT_VOLUME_INFORMATION.

Asking 'cos if not (1), then I'm prepared to have a go at it.

Thanks,
Richard
