Oh. Why are you using a bind mount in the first place?

Anyway, I guess we just have to add another special case for this.

Which doesn't look horrible. Right now path_pts() just does

        ret = path_parent_directory(path);

and that simply doesn't work for a bind mount file.

I think we could just change path_parent_directory() to go through
file bind mounts. The other user is follow_dotdot(), but that always
takes a directory, so it wouldn't be affected.

But it's probably safer to just teach path_pts to just walk up the
bind mount first, and then do the existing path_parent_directory.

Anybody want to just try that thing?
