sorry but if i get borked as suer with endless lists in "df"
and useless warnings while callign "df" the kernels point
of view does not matter for me!
you want a example of the real world - here it is:
* openssh / sftp
Match User anyuser
* to use sftp as ftp-replacement you need bind-mounts
* create 20 empty folders
* every of this gets a bind-mount to the users webspaces
having 100 user with 5 subfolders in F15 means you
see a list with 500 entries calling "df" in F15
is this funny?
no it is not!
But it still does just mean that df must be fixed, not
that /proc/mounts/bind would make any sense or even if patched somehow
would be acceptable into the kernel.
No matter how far down the wrong road you've gone, turn back.
