SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 02/27] containers: Implement containers as kernel objects

The container id details are ludicrous and will break practically
every use case. This completely unacceptable.

No. This is absolutely unacceptable.
As this breaks breaks nested containers and process migration.

Why? nsproxy would be a much cheaper location to put this.
Less space and less foobar.

This id is not in a namespace, and it doesn't have enough bits
of entropy to be globally unique. Not that 64bit is enough
to have a chance at being globablly unique.
