There's no automated method, but grepping MNT_UPDATE through the
source reveals that tmpfs supports remounting only for certain flags.
For linprocfs/linsysfs I'm not sure, it seems there isn't a struct
vfsops in them.

I'm afraid I don't have time to investigate this atm, sorry!  I'm
adding debian-bsd to CC, maybe someone can help.
