New option to mount added with 2.4.0 kernels, it allows you to mount one 
portion of the filesystem multiple times in different places.

- From mount man page:
      The type bind is not a filesystem type but allows remount­
       ing  a part of the file hierarchy somewhere else. The call
       is `mount -t bind olddir newdir' or `mount -t bind oldfile
       newfile',  or  `mount  --bind  olddir  newdir'  with later
       mount/kernel versions.
