Thanks for the review! Happy to rework this until it's in a mergeable shape.

Sorry, I'm not following. I'm I'm not mistaken there won't be any struct
net when CONFIG_NET=n. This has been reported by kbuild robot with alpha
and CONFIG_NET=n.

Does that work even if CONFIG_NET=n?

I'm not yet familiar with all aspects of sysfs so thanks for pointing
that out. Then I'll try to come up with a way to fetch the network
namespace associated with sysfs. Unless you already know exactly how to
do this and can point it out.
This would also lets us drop get_ns_uevent_seqnum_by_vpid().

Because it doesn't check whether the socket buffer can hold the sequence
number but checks whether the uevent buffer size in "env" can hold it.
uevents are only delivered if the env buffer is large enough to hold all
of the info including the sequence number. That's independent of the
socket buffer.

I guess I can just override it. It just felt cleaner to trim it.

Yes, I did. I also wonder why it wouldn't make it. Any specific reason
why you suspect this?

But in this list only non-initial network namespaces that are owned by
the initial user namespace are recorded and for these uevent_sock_mutex
has to be taken. Am I missing something?
