But which container ID? Don't forget that a task is in one container
in each hierarchy of which there could be more than one. At its
simplest this new subsystem could just be a way to tell iptables which
hierarchy to look at when matching based on container id. In practice
it's probably reasonable to make the "iptables container id"
user-settable since userspace is building the iptables rules and might
want to use its own numbering scheme for the ids. (E.g. all container
IDs in a particular range have the same kinds of permissions).
