To make sure I understand correctly: the problem is that the second mount ignored the options because the device was already mounted, right?

For the new API, I think the only remotely sane approach is to refuse to mount or init or whatever you call it an already mounted bdev. If user code genuinely needs to bind-mount an existing mount that is known only by its bdev, we can add a specific API just for that.
