the program umount.c unmounts devices.
This program calls a function called umount(...)
this function calls the kernel function do_umount
located in super.c in kernel.
I can not find the function umount!
Where is it?

FYI:  There is a kernel function called sys_umount,
the comments in this section say it is "umount"!

If this is true how does sys_umount get associated with umount?
