Note: removed redundant information about rootfs and mpX, rest is just moving
and adding headings.

 Mount Points

-Beside the root directory the container can also have additional mount points.

 Currently there are basically three types of mount points: storage backed
 mount points, bind mounts and device mounts.

 Bind mounts are considered to not be managed by the storage subsystem, so you
 cannot make snapshots or deal with quotas from inside the container, and with
 unprivileged containers you might run into permission problems caused by the
 user mapping, and cannot use ACLs from inside an unprivileged container.

 WARNING: For security reasons, bind mounts should only be established
 using source directories especially reserved for this purpose, e.g., a
 directory hierarchy under `/mnt/bindmounts`. Never bind mount system
 directories like `/`, `/var` or `/etc` into a container - this poses a
 great security risk. The bind mount source path must not contain any symlinks.
