SubjectRe: [PATCH] devpts: resolve devpts bind-mounts

I have two concerns.
1) By leaving the test:

/* Has the devpts filesystem already been found? */
if (path->mnt->mnt_sb->s_magic == DEVPTS_SUPER_MAGIC)
return 0;

In the version of devpts_ptmx_path that you call in the new code
there is a chance it will trip up on that test and return early.
Not that we are likely to hit that in practice, but let's be clear
about what we are doing.

2) After the call of devpts_ptmx_path in the new code there is not
a check that the returned mount is the filesystem we are looking
for. AKA it is missing a "DEVPTS_SB(path.mnt->mnt_sb) == fsi" test.
