But how can send_signal() know that the signal comes from the upper ns?
This is not trivial, we can't blindly use current to check. The signal
can be sent from irq/workqueue/etc.

Perhaps we can start with something like the patch below. Not that I like
it very much though. We should really place this code under
CONFIG_I_DO_CARE_ABOUT_NAMESPACES ;)
