That's not an issue, we don't put #ifdefs in .c code if at all possible,
you will note that you added a bunch of them :(

Oh I know why you did it, I just don't like it :)

I don't think you should be running udevd within a container, as a
device is never bound to a namespace (network devices are the only
exception), it's a false thing to think that a uevent is only for a
single namespace as well. I understand your wish to change only the
kernel to get unmodified userspace to run, but I suggest modifying your
userspace instead :)

sorry,

greg k-h
