[patch 9/9] unprivileged mounts: add "no submounts" flag

From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi at suse.cz>

Add a new mount flag "nomnt", which denies submounts for the owner.
This would be useful, if we want to support traditional /etc/fstab
based user mounts.

In this case mount(8) would still have to be suid-root, to check the
mountpoint against the user/users flag in /etc/fstab, but /etc/mtab
would no longer be mandatory for storing the actual owner of the
mount.
