    It does allocation. And no, GFP_ATOMIC is not appropriate for that.
    The same goes for mount IDs, BTW, and there we _also_ don't need
    vfsmount_lock - see my current tree, there we have clone_mnt()
    serialized by namespace_sem in all cases.

    And? See the original posting - invent_group_ids() skips the vfsmounts
    with already set group ID.
