Why would it? Increase of netns refcount should happen when you
follow /proc/*/ns/net and stay for as long as nsfs inode is alive,
not by cloning that mount. And while we are at it, you don't need
to bind it anywhere in order to call setns() - just open the
sucker and then feed the resulting descriptor to setns(2). No
mount --bind involved and if child exiting between open() and
setns() would free netns, we would have exact same problem.

Look: we call ns_get_path(), which calls ns_get_path_cb(), which
calls the callback passed to it (ns_get_path_task(), in this case),
which grabs a reference to ns. Then we pass that reference to

__ns_get_path() looks for dentry stashed in ns. If there is one
and it's still alive, we grab a reference to that dentry and drop
the reference to ns - no new inodes had been created, so no new
namespace references have appeared. Existing inode is pinned
by dentry and dentry is pinned by _dentry_ reference we've got.

If dentry is not there or is already in the middle of being destroyed,
we allocate a new inode, stash our namespace reference into it,
create a dentry referencing that new inode, stash it into namespace
and return that dentry. Without dropping namespace reference we'd
obtained in ns_get_path_task() - it went into new inode.

If inode or dentry creation fails (out of memory), we drop what
we'd obtained (namespace if inode creation fails, just the inode
if dentry creation fails - namespace reference that went into
inode will be dropped by inode destructor in the latter case) and
return an error.

If somebody else manages to get through the entire thing while
we'd been allocating stuff and we see _their_ dentry already
stashed into namespace, we just drop our dentry (its destructor
will drop inode reference, which will lead to inode destructor,
which will drop namespace reference) and bugger off with -EAGAIN.
The caller (ns_get_path_cb()) will retry the entire thing.

The invariant to be preserved here is "each of those inodes
holds a reference to namespace for as long as the inode exists".
ns_get_path() increments namespace refcount if and only if it
has allocated an nsfs inode. If it grabs an existing dentry
instead, the namespace refcount remains unchanged.

Anyway, I would really like to see .config and C (or shell)
reproducer. Ideally - .config that could be run in a KVM.
