mount() system call.

I suffered this problem below environments.

br option is cut and aufs search cut directory. Length of mount option
is about 6400. So I tested again with reduced option to about 4000 
characters (PAGE_SIZE 4096 in kernel) by reducing branches, AUFS works well.

So I looked copy_mount_options() function in the kernel. This function
copys mount option form user memory to kernel memory within PAGE_SIZE(4096).
