[PATCH 0/6] statfs: handle mount propagation




Hey,

This little series
- unifies the definition of constants in statfs.h and fs.h
- extends statfs to handle mount propagation. This will let userspace
  easily query a given mountpoint for MS_UNBINDABLE, MS_SHARED,
  MS_PRIVATE and MS_SLAVE without always having to do costly parsing of
  /proc/<pid>/mountinfo.
  To this end the flags:
  - ST_UNBINDABLE
  - ST_SHARED
  - ST_PRIVATE
  - ST_SLAVE
  are added. They have the same value as their MS_* counterparts.

The patchset was made against Al's vfs/for-next tree but they also apply
cleanly against current linus/master. So if they are deemed suitable for
inclusion in the current release that should work too.

Thanks!
Christian
