What I find in my old containers folders when grepping for
'device namespace' is mainly vague references to devicens as
a more ideal solution to other patches being submitted (namely
the device cgroup, the sysfs directory tagging, and ptyns).

A link which was referenced in one of those emails:

So while I'm pretty sure I have in the past seen discussions on what
the device namespace would look like, they must have been on irc or
in person.
