SubjectRE: [PATCH v2] let proc net directory inodes reflect to active net namespace
Hello Alexey,

Sounds excellent! Could you please drop a notifier of such?

For our usecase, the ipv6 is statically linked (=y) and then this happens way before
userland starts (thus no access to procfs) so I believe we should be able to continue
as is until we can replace with your proper patch. Agree?

Also still wonder about the others that creates directories in procfs net, that do not
call proc_net_mkdir().
My second patch changed to use proc_net_mkdir for dev_snmp6 directory, so if proc_net_mkdir is fixed
it should cover at least the ipv6 snmp counters. But I think there's other that could benefit of same?
Like :

net/netfilter/xt_hashlimit.c: hashlimit_net->ipt_hashlimit = proc_mkdir("ipt_hashlimit", net->proc_net);
net/netfilter/xt_hashlimit.c: hashlimit_net->ip6t_hashlimit = proc_mkdir("ip6t_hashlimit", net->proc_net);

Wouldn't those also want to be reflected by a net namespace change?
Just an example, there are others too.

OK, this is buggy in a different way:
once proc_mkdir_data() returns, proc entry is live and should be fully
ready, so dentry operations should be glued before that.

I'll send proper patch.
