Hi,

Eric has been working on finishing the user namespace, and is hoping to get
a subset of it to into linux-next very soon.  Some of it is expected to
hit 3.5 (barring any unforeseen objections).  His git tree is at
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace.git;a=summary
and I have it applied on top of q kernel at
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=serge/quantal-userns.git;a=summary
(and built at https://launchpad.net/~serge-hallyn/+archive/userns-natty).

I've shown how to use it here:

I'm not asking for the patchset to be pulled into our kernel now, but if
some of it hits 3.5, then it would be nice to carry the rest in quantal.

thanks,
-serge
