Definitely not always.

I think the text above is self-explanatory; I'm not sure what the
diagram adds. Also, Matthew Wilcox pointed out a third option that you
ought to consider, and you can look to the example of audit filesystem
watches there, which leverages inotify internally.

If that isn't feasible for some reason, then option (2) should be fairly
straightforward - you just define and insert some new security hooks in
the callers where the vfsmount is already available.
