Well, if you think about it as about two separated things -- VFS-flags
and FS-flags (and for example /proc/#/mountinfo already uses two
columns for the flags) than the question is why the API uses one
variable?

Would be better to use two variables everywhere? (mostly for the
syscall).

It would be nice to keep for example propagation flags only in
vfs_flags, or use MS_RDONLY according to context (for FS or for VFS)
without extra MS_BIND, etc.
