Jonathan Calmels from NVIDIA reported that he's able to bypass the mount
visibility security check in place in the Linux kernel by using a combination
of the unbindable property along with the private mount propagation option to
allow a unprivileged user to see a path which was purposefully hidden by the
root user.

These patches cleanly cherry-pick back to Trusty.
