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.
