How about an approach which doesn't require the vfsmount to be passed

When the rule is put in place, say "No modifications to /etc/passwd",
look up the inode and major:minor of /etc/passwd. If there's a rename,
look up the new inode number. If it's mounted elsewhere, it doesn't
matter, they still can't modify it because it has the same

Is this workable?

Intel are signing my paycheques ... these opinions are still mine
"Bill, look, we understand that you're interested in selling us this
operating system, but compare it to ours. We can't possibly take such
a retrograde step."
