Subject: Re: [PATCH 07/16] net: Make /proc/net per network namespace

From: (Eric W. Biederman)
Date: Sat, 08 Sep 2007 15:20:36 -0600

> This patch makes /proc/net per network namespace.  It modifies the global
> variables proc_net and proc_net_stat to be per network namespace.
> The proc_net file helpers are modified to take a network namespace argument,
> and all of their callers are fixed to pass &init_net for that argument.
> This ensures that all of the /proc/net files are only visible and
> usable in the initial network namespace until the code behind them
> has been updated to be handle multiple network namespaces.
> Making /proc/net per namespace is necessary as at least some files
> in /proc/net depend upon the set of network devices which is per
> network namespace, and even more files in /proc/net have contents
> that are relevant to a single network namespace.
