The pushdown can be in a separate tree that can be merged independently,
just the final patch removing it in do_new_mount needs to wait
for everything else to get merged first. We have some other patches,
in particular the one that makes CONFIG_BKL modular that have to
wait for other patches and should probably just be applied separately
rather than merged from a bisectable git tree.
