Well I see where a shared mount *should* be turned into a slave mount
when bind-mounted as a user mount, but it doesn't seem to be happening.
In particular, after doing a user mount of /mnt onto
/home/hallyn/etc/mnt, /proc/self/mountinfo ends in:

22 13 3:1 /mnt /mnt rw shared:1 - ext3 /dev/root
23 13 3:1 /mnt /root/mnt rw shared:1 - ext3 /dev/root
24 13 3:1 /mnt /home/hallyn/etc/mnt rw,user=500 shared:1 - ext3
/dev/root rw,errors=continue,user_xattr,acl,data=ordered

I assume this means that /mnt and /home/hallyn/etc/mnt are peers
in peergroup 1?

And indeed if hallyn does mount --bind /usr /home/hallyn/etc/mnt/usr,
then /mnt/usr shows the contents of /usr.

I see that in do_loopback() you are adding CL_SLAVE|CL_MAKE_SHARED to
flags so I don't get what is going on. Still looking through the code.
