Basically, ConditionPathIsMountPoint=/etc/machine-id is met in the unit 
and so systemd-machine-id-commit is launched.

This one:
- executes the double checking path_is_mount_point(etc_machine_id, 
false) successfully (of course)
- find that machine-id fd is a temporary fs (based on the same issue), 
read the machine-id file content
- switch namespace
- call unmount(etc_machine_id), which obviously fails as there is 
nothing to unmount. I don't think we should shadow that failure and not 
returning in error here, right?
