That comes from these lines in syscall_arg__scnprintf_mount_flags:

if ((flags & MS_MGC_MSK) == MS_MGC_VAL)
	flags &= ~MS_MGC_MSK;

The reason for this is explained in the comment for do_mount in fs/namespace.c:

/*
 * Pre-0.97 versions of mount() didn't have a flags word.
 * When the flags word was introduced its top half was required
 * to have the magic value 0xC0ED, and this remained so until 2.4.0-test9.
 * Therefore, if this magic number is present, it carries no information
 * and must be discarded.
*/

(I used a bind mount for my commit message example because a "default" mount() doesn't use any flags.)

LGTM. Thanks
