Linus,

   HEAD: fe78fcc85a2046c51f1535710996860557eeec20 mnt: In detach_mounts detach the appropriate unmounted mount

While reading through the code of detach_mounts I realized the code was
a slightly off.  Testing it revealed two buggy corner cases that can send
the code of detach_mounts into an infinite loop.  Fixing the code to do
the right thing removes the possibility of these user triggered infinite
loops in the code.

Eric W. Biederman (2):
      mnt: Clarify and correct the disconnect logic in umount_tree
      mnt: In detach_mounts detach the appropriate unmounted mount
