[C/R v20][PATCH 13/96] c/r: break out new_user_ns()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Serge E. Hallyn <serue@xxxxxxxxxx>

Break out the core function which checks privilege and (if
allowed) creates a new user namespace, with the passed-in
creating user_struct.  Note that a user_namespace, unlike
other namespace pointers, is not stored in the nsproxy.
Rather it is purely a property of user_structs.

This will let us keep the task restore code simpler.
