Sorry if this was already discussed, I have to admit that I ignored
the previous discussion ;) And it is possible I misread this patch
completely.

Well, personally I too think that the filenames look a bit strange,
can't it just print the numbers?

And, iiuc what this patch does... perhaps in this case we should
simply add "struct list_head children" into struct pid_namespace?
In this case the patch will be really simple. I dunno.

GFP_KERNEL under rcu_read_lock(). This is not safe without
CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU.

afaics, it doesn't make sense to continue after list_add() ?

Hmm. We only want the tasks from our namespace, yes? Perhaps find_ge_pid()
makes more sense?

Well, in theory you need barrier() here. Or perhaps we should add
ACCESS_ONCE() into task_pid()...

And imho it would be better to declare pidns_list/pidns_tree locally
in nslist_proc_show() and pass them to the callees.
