Our team has fully tested this feature, and no abnormalities have been
found yet.
What's more, this feature has been used in the product of our company. So if
there is any potential bug, as you mentioned above, I'd appreciate it if you can
spend some time on looking into it.

What's more, besides the problem that this feature solved, it has some more
benefits: saving memory. The amount of 'mnt_cache' is up to 50k when 180 docker
containers are created without this feature. However, only 15k 'mnt_cache' are
used with this feature enabled. Each 'mnt_cache' eats 320 bytes, so about 11M
memory is saved in this situation.

Please let me know if this feature is illogical or if there is any
better solution, thanks~

Best Wishes!
