Subject: Re: [PATCH 08/16] net: Make socket creation namespace safe.

From: (Eric W. Biederman)
Date: Sat, 08 Sep 2007 15:23:01 -0600

> This patch passes in the namespace a new socket should be created in

> virtue of this all socket create methods are touched.  In addition
> the socket create methods are modified so that they will fail if
> you attempt to create a socket in a non-default network namespace.
> Failing if we attempt to create a socket outside of the default
> network namespace ensures that as we incrementally make the network stack
> network namespace aware we will not export functionality that someone

> Allowing us to partially enable network namespaces before all of the
> exotic protocols are supported.
> Any protocol layers I have missed will fail to compile because I now
