Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/2] proc: Generalize proc inode allocation

Quoting Eric W. Biederman (ebiederm@...ssion.com):
> 
> Generalize the proc inode allocation so that it can be
> used without having to having to create a proc_dir_entry.
> 
> This will allow namespace file descriptors to remain light
> weight entitities but still have the same inode number
> when the backing namespace is the same.
> 
> Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@...ssion.com>

Acked-by: Serge Hallyn <serge@...lyn.com>
