How can we move in another namespace without this "switch"? If the task
root and cwd isn't switched, they points to the old tree. In this case
how can we open something from the new tree?

Do you mean that root should not be changed if it points on a detached
mount or on a mount from another mount namespace? This looks reasonable.
