Simple demonstration with some bind mount:

  # systemd-nspawn -b -D /tmp/myroot --bind /etc/cron.daily/

with current systemd you'll get

  dev-sda3.device loaded inactive dead dev-sda3.device

and with the v2 patch you get

  dev-sda3.device loaded activating tentative dev-sda3.device

which is what's intended, right? (This simple setup doesn't reproduce
the overzealous unmounting yet, but it shows the wrong state)
