I expect pn_socket_create() should forbid this, no?

    if (net != &init_net)
            return -EAFNOSUPPORT;
    /* ... */
    sk = sk_alloc(net, PF_PHONET, GFP_KERNEL, pnp->prot);

Hmmm, good point. Should I forbid adding an address to devices outside the 
initial namespace? what about a device with an existing address being 
migrated?
