Joshua Kwan provides additional informations on IRC:

failing call:
| mount(0x14e060: 'none', 0x150070: '/proc', 0xefffffc5: 'proc', c0ed0000, 0x14e050: '')
successful call:
| mount(0x14e060: 'none', 0x14f068: '/proc', 0x151208: 'proc', c0ed0000, 0x14e050: '')

The output shows the pointer and dereferenced string arguments for the
mount call.

The difference of the failing and successful call is the third argument.
It is located on the heap for the successful call and in the process
arguments for the failing call.


Beam me up, Scotty, there's no intelligent life down here!
