+--------------------------------------------------------------------------
+These files provides information about the namespaces within which the process
+is contained.  The files named only with the namespace type <nstype> contain a
+link that lists the containing namespace' inode number in its proc filesystem.
+The files with suffix _snum contain a link that lists the containing
+namespace' instance serial number, unique per kernel since boot.  The
+namespace types are self-describing.
+
+The output format of the inode links is:
+	<nstype>:[<inode_number>]
+The output format of the serial number links is:
+	<nstype>_snum:[<serial_number>]
