It certainly worked in my testing.

Well sometimes you have to go with what works.

Thanks for spotting those issue with my patch. I guess it needs one more
pass before I can call it done.

Thanks for the review. The bug where processes can escape a pid
namespace is really the reason I did it this way. I also have the
patches needed to cleanly fix the pid namespace ref counting.
(Hopefully I can get them posted soon). So if there was just the
ref counting bug I would drop this patch.
