ok.

This function does the equivalent of 'mount --bind dir dir'
It creates a new child vfsmount at that dentry, and moves
the children vfsmounts below that dentry, under the newly created child
vfsmount. There is a header comment for that function. But it got
into the 2nd patch.

This function returns immeditely if a vfsmount already exists at the
dentry. Otherwise it creates a vfsmount at the specified dentry, and if
the dentry belongs to shared vfsmount it ensures the same
operation is done on all peer vfsmounts to which propogation
is set.

apart from changing types, it has to create a new vfsmount if one
does not exist at that point.

yes. will do.

Yes. I found it useful to write generic code without having to worry
about the details of the traversal being duplicated everywhere. Do you
have better suggestion? This function is the equivalent of next_mnt()
for traversing pnode trees.

yes. this function takes care of traversing the propogation tree and
creating a child vfsmount for dentries in each vfsmount encountered.
In other words it calls do_make_mounted() for each vfsmount that belongs
to the propogation tree.

Yes. will delete it. Initially thought I would need it.
