    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!
