    Ah, CLONE_NEWNS and then you need /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs. Got it.

    I'm kind of surprised that the kernel cares about a specific path under
    /var/lib. (Seems like policy in the kernel somehow.) Can't it just
    check the current process's mount list to see if an instance of
    rpc_pipefs is mounted in the current namespace the way lxc looks for
    cgroups? Or are there potential performance/scalability issues with that?
