Unfortunately, it's not so simple ;-)

This is incorrect, the flags may also include many others flags. For
example MS_REMOUNT|MS_BIND|MS_RDONLY is valid (see do_remoun() code).

And it's normal that for "mount -o remount" the mount command reads
flags from mtab/fstab so it includes for example MS_RELATIME, ...

 what about MS_REC ?

 what about MS_REC ?

 Note that do_change_type() already checks for unexpected flags and
 returns -EINVAL if more flags are specified.
