> Allow bind mounts to unprivileged users if the following conditions are met:
> 
>   - mountpoint is not a symlink
>   - parent mount is owned by the user
>   - the number of user mounts is below the maximum
> 
> Unprivileged mounts imply MS_SETUSER, and will also have the "nosuid" and
> "nodev" mount flags set.
> 
> In particular, if mounting process doesn't have CAP_SETUID capability,
> then the "nosuid" flag will be added, and if it doesn't have CAP_MKNOD
> capability, then the "nodev" flag will be added.
