OK, that answers the question about MS_MOVE... Please, add brute-force
"we don't allow it other than in trivial case" *before* the previous
patch, replacing it with the right thing here.

BTW, I suspect that a look at operations on ->mnt_list and friends you
have in the entire thing would bring several inlined helpers covering
most of the instances; there's definitely too much raw list_add(), etc.
instances in the current code.

FWIW, such helpers should probably go in the same place where you
introduce unclonable - they won't complicate earlier patch and will
be in place there and they won't clutter this one anymore.
