Going through the code trying to learn how systemd exactly works and
try to understand the mounting better, hunting down some weird mount
related bug I came across something that did not look right.

If I understood things right, basic filesystems get mounted one at a 
time by looping through the mount_table one by one (with mount_one).
Now it seems that in the case smack is enabled /run will get mounted
twice. I could not immediately find specific info about smack related
to /run but it does not seem very sensible to mount another tmpfs
instance on /run hiding the smack one.
