Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next v2 0/7] netns: ease netlink use with a lot of netns


So I am dense.  I have read through the patches and I don't see where
you tag packets from other network namespaces with a network namespace
id.

In fact I don't even see an attribute that is approrpriate for such
tagging.

Your comment below indicates such tagging is taking place but I am dense
and I am not seeing it.
