Is vfs_stall() the only place that locks (busies) multiple mounts? If it's
the only place _and_ it hotlds no other locks when doing that then I think
it actually is safe, because it would be equivalent to multiple threads
each holding only a single mount lock and nothing else.
Even if we agree that evaluation is correct, I don't think we want to mark
mnt_lock as DUPOK for all purposes, but rather just pass LOP_DUPOK through
for the calls from vfs_stall().
