Hi Miklos,

so on the bright side I pulled this tree today and it compiled and
passed ltp with no problems.

But then I played around a bit and found I could do the following:

(hmm, i'm trying to remember the exact order :)

as root:
mmount --bind -o user=500 /home/hallyn/etc/ /home/hallyn/etc/
mount --bind /mnt /mnt
mount --make-rshared /mnt
mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev

as hallyn:
mmount --bind /mnt /home/hallyn/etc/mnt
/usr/src/mmount-0.3/mmount --bind mnt/dev mnt/src

Now /mnt/src contained /dev.

Is this what we want? Do we want to tell the admin it's his fault for
not somehow forcing a slave relationship between /mnt and
/home/hallyn/etc/mnt? Except I don't think he can do that preemptively,
it has to be done after hallyn does the mmount.

So does that mean that if non-root user X does:

mount a b

where b is user=X but a is not, then if a is shared we should force it
to be mounted as slave at b?

-serge
