Hi Eric,

I've cloned the repository and built the kernel.

Unshare support is broken. It misses a small change in sys_unshare()
to accept the CLONE_NEWNET flag.
I guess it should be added in commit "net: Add network namespace
clone & unshare support." (See attached patch below)

Also, have you removed the "sysfs interface support for moving devices =

between namespaces" on purpose?
Is there another way to move interfaces now?
