OK, I will verify that the SELinux submount fix rebased on top of
vfs/work.mount in the way I suggested above passes the same testing
(seliinux-testsuite + NFS crossmnt reproducer). I am now building two
kernels (vfs/work.mount with and without the fix) to test. Let me know
if there is anything more to do.

Thanks,
