    Subject[PATCH -mm 0/7] execns syscall and user namespace
    Hello !

    The following patchset adds the user namespace and a new syscall execns.

    The user namespace will allow a process to unshare its user_struct table,
    resetting at the same time its own user_struct and all the associated
    accounting.

    The purpose of execns is to make sure that a process unsharing a namespace
    is free from any reference in the previous namespace. the execve() semantic
    seems to be the best candidate as it already flushes the previous process
    context.

    Thanks for reviewing, sharing, flaming !

    C.
