When attempting to find the mount point of a path we can end up returning
an incorrect mount point. This happens because we consider a mount point
valid for the given path even if it matches only partially the patch.
Consider the following example, which makes btrfs receive fail:

  $ truncate -s 1G disk1
  $ truncate -s 1G disk2

  $ losetup /dev/loop1 disk1
  $ losetup /dev/loop2 disk2

  $ mkfs.btrfs -f /dev/loop1
  $ mkfs.btrfs -f /dev/loop2

  $ mount /dev/loop1 /mnt
  $ mkdir /mnt/ddis
  $ mkdir /mnt/ddis-not-a-mount
  $ mount /dev/loop2 /mnt/ddis

  $ echo "some data" > /mnt/ddis/file
  $ btrfs subvolume snapshot -r /mnt/ddis /mnt/ddis/snap

  $ btrfs send -f /tmp/send.data /mnt/ddis/snap
  $ btrfs receive -f /tmp/send.data /mnt/ddis-not-a-mount
  At subvol snap
  ERROR: chown  failed: No such file or directory

In that example btrfs receive passes the path "/mnt/ddis-not-a-mount" to
find_mount_root() which picks "/mnt/ddis" as the mount point instead of
"/mnt". The wrong decision happens because "/mnt/ddis" is the longest
string found that is a prefix of "/mnt/ddis-not-a-mount", however it
shouldn't be considered valid because what follows the substring "ddis"
in the given path is not a path separator ("/") nor the null character
('\0'). So fix find_mount_root() to check for the presence of a path
separator or a null byte character after if finds a mount point string
that matches the given path.

A test case will follow soon in a separate patch.

s/patch/path/? "...even if it only partially matches" might be a bit
clearer.

Looks good and works for me.

Agreed.
David can probably correct that (and your email address from ddis@ to
ddiss@) when he picks the patch, otherwise I can send a new version.
Thanks.
