See comment from the version 1:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/10/1/377

"This looks wrong. A write handler's behavior should not depend on the
namespace of the process that is using it.

Ideally, the affected namespace should depend on the file you're writing to.
If that's not possible, the affected namespace should at least be the
namespace of the process that opened the file." -- Jann Horn

And from version 2:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/10/3/872

"Something else: bm_register_write() currently calls into open_exec(),
which uses the credentials of current. That's not really allowed in
this context - but so far, it's not a big deal because only
init-namespace root can reach this code. Before you expose this stuff
to unprivileged userspace, this needs to get fixed; perhaps by
wrapping the open_exec() call in override_creds(file->f_cred) and
revert_creds()." -- Jann Horn

Thanks,
Laurent
