    Now that the kernel has CLONE_NEWNS, it's possible to mount proc
    "privately" just for a specific process tree. It meshes nicely with
    CLONE_NEWPID. Previously if you mounted proc in a chroot, it cluttered
    the mount list and leaked information about outside the root.
    With modern clone/unshare, that's no longer a concern, so there's
    much less reason to use "bare" chroots.
