If it runs "inside" this namespace. But in this case alloc_pid() should
use nr == set_tid only once in the main loop, when i == ns->level.

It doesn't need to have the same pid_nr in the parent pid namespace.

And in fact we should not allow criu (or anything else) to control the child's
pid_nr in the parent(s) namespace.

Right?

IIURC, criu can restore the process tree along with nested pid namespaces.

how can this patch help in this case?

But again, perhaps I missed something. I forgot everything about criu.

Oleg.
