Agreed, that's sort of how I envisioned things going. In general,
you'll want to move things that were one global structures to struct
nfsd_net, and fix up the code to manage that on a per-ns basis.

The catch here is that the laundromat is somewhat intertwined with the
grace period, and you need to consider how to handle the grace period
between different namespaces. Do we keep a single grace period
per-machine as we have today? Or do we move to a per-ns grace period
that is started whenever someone starts up knfsd within the container?
