Subject: [PATCH V2 0/1] ipv4: net namespace does not inherit network configurations

V2: Following the advice from Cong Wang, I submit a patch as normal.

Hi,all

I did a test on kernel3.16 rc6:

root@...u1:~# echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/forwarding
root@...u1:~# echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/all/forwarding
root@...u1:~# ip netns list
root@...u1:~# ip netns add fib1
root@...u1:~# ip netns exec fib1 bash
root@...u1:~# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/forwarding
0
root@...u1:~# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/all/forwarding
1

The behavior of ipv4 and ipv6 is very inconsistent. I checked
the kernel source code. I found that from this patch
[ipv6: fix bad free of addrconf_init_net], the above difference
appeared.

Since a net namespace is independent to another. That is, there
is no any relationship between the net namespaces. So the behavior
of ipv4 is not correct.

Based on this patch [ipv6: fix bad free of addrconf_init_net], I made
a new patch to fix this problem on ipv4.

Any reply is appreciated.
