    Humm... How does one distinguish between these variants? Searching
    in mountinfo for vfsmount with group ID of reported master? We can
    live with that, but it looks like a subtlety that will be cheerfully
    forgotten by userland code.

    Will do for now, but I think that we'll need that piece of documentation
    more noticable and not so easy to overlook.
