Good example.
'mount' instead of simple 'cp' means struct stat.st_dev differs.
And it will make some applications confused such as find -x, du -x, df,
chmod/own -R, rm -r, or etc.

I see.
I think I can understand about multi threads. Other threads will not be
affected. I will test about a signal handler someday.
