I've created a git tree with the following mounts related stuff:

  - read-only bind mounts
  - /proc/<pid>/mountinfo
  - unprivileged mounts

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mszeredi/vfsstuff.git master

I guess, giving these a spin in linux-next wouldn't hurt?

Thanks,
Miklos

I don't think this is what we want to use linux-next for.  Linux-next is
really a place for stuff that will pretty clearly go into the next kernel
release i.e. 2.6.26 right now.  If you want to experiment on things for
beyond that timeframe, then a snapshot of linux-next may be a good base.
I will take them when they reach the appropriate subsystem tree and are
ready for integration.

FWIW, I must apologize for delay with getting the damn tree open on
kernel.org ;-/   The last couple of weeks had been Not Fun(tm) in a
lot of respects.

Hopefully I'll finish putting the damn thing into publishable shape by
tomorrow.  As for the stuff mentioned above...  ro-bind series - definitely
yes, mountinfo - IMO needs a sane discussion of what and how should be shown
wrt propagation state, unprivileged mounts - in the "need to finish reviewing"
pile.
