Description

With null mounts, rm -r in root can be dangerous. GNU rm as an option for that :

--one-file-system
when removing a hierarchy recursively, skip
any directory that is on a file system differ‐
ent from that of the corresponding command
line argument

Here is an easy patch to add a similar option to rm.

Looks good.

The same logic is already present in du, for example, so it's nice to have it be in all of the base utilities.
