comment Can two files in a directory be on different filesystems
Thanks for the input, it has been helpful. So I have to report busy in this case too. BTW, @StephaneChazelas, that little experiment helped a lot.

What is the effect of this in regards of atomicity of rename?

How would this interact with rename(2)? (Fail with EACCESS?)

comment Allow non-superusers to mount any filesystem
Thanks for your answer! BTW, would you reckon it is secure to allow users in the group mount to be able to mount filesystems like root does? I will read the namespaces document you've linked, and try to implement this mount group thing, at least as an exercise.

comment Allow non-superusers to mount any filesystem
What I would like to have is to mount the filesystem without the agency of the root user. Masking this agency with anything is not what I'm after at all.

comment Allow non-superusers to mount any filesystem
This is the only answer I can find with googling. I have found out that on FreeBSD, one can allow users to mount filesystems with setting a variable (namely vfs.usermount). I want sth. analogous to that. I use many removable drives with many partitions on each and it would be cumbersome to add a dozen or two entries to fstab for each of them.

I have thought of this, but won't this require the user to run the command with sudo? Also, isn't it the root user mounting the file system, only behind the scenes, with this method?

@strugee ; does this imply that I should change BIOS time instead?
