Unfortunately, even with FS_CONTEXT_FOR_ROOT_MOUNT the submount test
is still failing. (Actually, re-reading the description for
FS_CONTEXT_FOR_ROOT_MOUNT it seems it is not actually related to
submounts, although we should probably still skip the check for it,
too.) I will need to dig deeper into this on Monday...

FWIW, the generated AVC denial is still the same so it must be failing
the check in that particular hook (the FILESYSTEM__MOUNT permission is
checked only in that single place):

type=AVC msg=audit(02.12.2018 01:55:03.626:604) : avc: denied {
mount } for pid=4036 comm=cat name=/ dev="0:48" ino=2
scontext=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:test_readnfs_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023
tcontext=system_u:object_r:nfs_t:s0 tclass=filesystem permissive=0
