BTW, It's my question.

actually ns_get_path is called in unshare(2). and it makes new dentry
and inode in __ns_get_path finally (Cuz it create new network
namespace)
In that case, when I mount with --bind option to this
proc/self/ns/net, it only increase dentry refcount on
do_loopback->clone_mnt finally (not call netns_operation->get)
That means it's not increase previous created network namespace
reference count but only increase reference count of _dentry_
In that situation, If I exit the child process it definitely frees the
net_namespace previous created at the same time it decrease
net_namespace's refcnt in exit_task_namespace().
It means it's possible that bind mount point can hold the dentry with
inode having net_namespace's dangling pointer in another process.
In above situation, parent who know that binded mount point calls
setns(2) then it sets the net_namespace which is refered by the inode
of the dentry increased by do_loopback.
That makes set the net_namespace which was freed already.

The Kernel Panic log is happend NOT in child kill but in Parent killed
after I setns(2) with the net_namespace made by child process.

Thanks you for your reviewing, But Please forgive that I couldn't
share .config right now (I try to make for x86....)
I try to understand your comments But Please forgive my fault because
of my ignorant...
If my explain is wrong, please rebuke me... and Please share your knowledge...

Thank you.
