Hi Eric,

Your patches about shadow/side mounts were committed, can we resume
the discussion about this patch?

As for security, a mount can be added to a shared group, only if a
caller has CAP_SYS_ADMIN in namespaces of both mounts, so an
unprivileged user can't create a shared mount with a parent mount
namespace. If a user has CAP_SYS_ADMIN, I don't see a reason to
restrict him to create shared mounts between namespaces, even if they
are in different user-namespaces.

Now I look at volume drivers in container services (like docker and
kubernetes) and I think this functionality can be useful for them too.
Now it is impossible to run a plugin driver in unprivileged containers
(with sub-userns), because a container has to have a shared mount with
a mount namespace where the service is running. The idea of these
plugins is that a service requests a volume mount from a plugin and
then starts a container with this volume, so the service need to have
a way to get a mount from a service.
