That pins the root struct vfsmount, but it doesn't pin the actual
process mount namespace. If the process is dead, then it is quite
possible that the struct mnt_namespace is gone, in which case while you
are pinning the root (i.e. '/'), submounts such as '/var' may be gone.

OTOH, I suppose that you can argue that if the mnt_namespace is gone,
then rpcbind can't be listening on /var/run/rpcbind.sock and so you are
screwed anyway...

OK.... Please just resend the patch, Ccing Al Viro and Christoph so that
we can get their opinion.
