Quoting Sukadev Bhattiprolu (sukadev at linux.vnet.ibm.com):
> 
> Deny CLONE_PARENT|CLONE_NEWPID|CLONE_SIGHAND combination.
> 
> CLONE_PARENT was used to implement an older threading model.  For consistency
> with the CLONE_THREAD check in copy_pid_ns(), disable CLONE_PARENT and
> CLONE_SIGHAND with CLONE_NEWPID, at least until the required semantics of
> the pid namespaces are clear.
> 
> Changelog[v2]:
> 	[Eric Biederman] Disable CLONE_SIGHAND also ???
