So you'd like to see 2 syscalls:

fmount(dev, dst, type, flags, data)
ftransmount(src, dst, flags) (bind + move)

About the flag splitting: you mean per-mountpoint and per-superblock
flags? Does the user care? The user may not even know which flag is
which. E.g. currently MS_NOATIME and MS_RDONLY are superblock flags,
but in the future they may become mountpoint flags.

Thanks for your comments!
