(looking through patch 3 a bit) is this expected to be safe because all
callers will send in a mnt which was privately mounted as nfs root_mnt through
vfs_kern_mount? So that at this point noone else can have a ref to
mnt?

If that isn't the intent, then this seems problematic... (If it is, it
seems worth commenting both so that every reader doesn't feel compelled
to verify, and so that no new callers will naively violate that
expectation)

thanks,
