No, systemd creates private mounts for both /var/tmp and /tmp.

How comes that I don't see this in /proc/mounts? And lsof don't show it,

bind mounts are not shown in /proc/mounts.

This is not true:

raven:/ # mkdir /tmp/t
raven:/ # mount -obind / /tmp/t
raven:/ # grep /tmp/t /proc/mounts
/dev/mapper/cr_sda8 /tmp/t ext3 rw,relatime,data=ordered 0 0
raven:/ #

a) you did not mount /dev/mapper/cr_sda8 on /tmp/t, did you? So you
have no information about bind mounts there.

b) /proc/mounts is alias for /proc/self/mounts which shows mount points
in *your* namespace. The whole point of namespaces is to restrict
visibility ...

I still fail to understand why /var/tmp is locked down. Isn't
/var/tmp/systemd-private-XXX the mount point?

No, mount point is /var/tmp. Just like in "mount /dev/foo /var/tmp".

Maybe it would be possible, to move those private directories one level
deeper: /tmp/systemd.d/private-XXX or something. That would have two benefits:
- it would keep the /tmp directory clean.
- the /tmp directory would not be locked down .

I'd say anyone needing to change top level filesystem layout should
really do it in single user mode.

It is because the other three services are still running. When I stop all of
them, I can rename even though the GUI is up. The wired thing here is that
/proc/*/mountinfo and /proc/mounts won't show anything.

Which is exactly what I mean under kernel bug.
