"This allows one subsystem to require that it only be mounted when some
other subsystems are also present in the proposed hierarchy."

That's not exactly what I meant, what I meant was that say you co-mount
cpu,cpuset the combined mount provides more features/better performance
than if you don't. Which then provides a natural incentive to actually
co-mount the stuff.

You patch looks like it forces the co-mount.
