SubjectRe: ipv4: net namespace does not inherit network configurations
Hi, Miller && Cong

Can we merge this patch into kernel mainline? since the independence
between ipv4 and ipv6 is inconsistent even in the latest linux
kernel(3.17-rc7),
that is, the net namespace is independent in ipv6 while it is not in ipv4.

Thanks a lot.
