Half of month passed, Can anybody give me some comments or advice or even
an ACK?

I think the key point is the first 3 patch. these patches add a compare
function per netlink_table, netlink sockets use this compare function to
decide if they can communicate with each other. For other netlink protocols
we use net namespace to make this decision. But for audit netlink protocol,
we use user namespace to make the decision. It means, for audit netlink sockets,
they can communicate when they in same user namespace and there is no need
for them to stay in same net namespace.

I don't know if anyone object to this and if there is a better solution.

Eric, Serge & David, can you give me some comments?

Thanks!
