    Do you mean, that follow_mount() should never descend into the
    dir-on-file mount but that should always be done by

    This could make sense.

    __lookup_mnt() currently returns the first matching mount in the hash
    list. With your suggestion, we'd need two __lookup_mnt() variants (or
    a parameter). One, that only matches normal mounts, and one that only
    matches dir-on-file mounts. Is that it?
