SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 06/27] containers, vfs: Allow syscall dirfd arguments to take a container fd

If this is desirable we can do this without a ``container''. We already
have mount namespaces.

Nacked-by: "Eric W. Biederman" <ebiederm@xmission.com>

In fact if you take care to use a path that starts with '/' the normal
dirfd based operations work just fine.

So I don't see the point of this system call at all.
