What I am planning might suit your needs and if not we need to talk some more about how to get the vfs to do something reasonable.Ok, Eric. Would be glad to discuss your sysctls plans. But actually you already know my needs: I would like to make sysctls work in the way like sysfs does: i.e. content of files depends on mount maker - not viewer.What drives the desire to have sysctls depend on the mount maker?
Because we can (will, actually) have nested fs root's for containers. IOW, container's root will be accessible from it's creator context. And I want to tune container's fs from creators context.
Especially what drives that desire not to have it have a /proc/<pid>/sys directory that reflects the sysctls for a given process.
This is not so important for me, where to access sysctl's. But I'm worrying about backward compatibility. IOW, I'm afraid of changing path "/proc/sys/sunprc/*" to "/proc/<pid>/sys/sunrpc". This would break a lot of user-space programs.
