basically it's simple, the vfs was (re)designed to
allow for a namespace (including mounts and other
things) per process, so that one process might 'see'
the /proc mounted for example, where the other has
it already unmounted ...
normally the namespace is shared among the processes
so all processes see the same 'picture' of the vfs
but this can be changed with some mount options
this is used in FreeVPS and recent linux-vserver
kernels to allow for separate namespaces, which
basically also allow arbitrary mounts and other
namespace manipulations without affecting the other
once the requirements for secure mounts are known
they will be added to the pool of linux-vserver
unfortunately there isn't much docu except for a
general vfs overview and the kernel source ...
