Hi Linus,

/* Summary */
This contains an extension to the move_mount() syscall making it possible to
add a single private mount into an existing propagation tree.
The use-case comes from the criu folks which have been struggling with
restoring complex mount trees for a long time. Variations of this work have
been discussed at Plumbers before (e.g.,
The extension to move_mount() enables criu to restore any set of mount
namespaces, mount trees and sharing group trees without introducing yet more
complexity into mount propagation itself. The changes required to criu to make
use of this and restore complex propagation trees are available at A cleaned-up version of
this will go up for merging into the main criu repo after this lands.

(In case any question come up I'll be on vacation next week so responding might
 take a while.)

/* Testing */
All patches are based on v5.14-rc3 and have been sitting in linux-next. No
build failures or warnings were observed. All old and new tests are passing.

/* Conflicts */

linux-next and no merge conflicts showed up doing a test-merge with current
