note that once you create a new user namespace, you cannot change your
credentials in the ancestor user namespaces.  So in effect you already
have no_new_privs for those namespaces.

So if I'm uid 1001 and I create a task in a new user namespace where
50000 on host is mapped to uid 0 in userns.  Now I try to execute a
file belonging to uid 500 on the host and setuid.  Note that 500 is not
mapped into my user namespace.  That is what Eric meant by either exec
being refused or setuid being ignored.  Either way, the file would be
executed using uid 50000 on the host (and 0 in the user namespace).
