Re: this hierarchy:
1) I think it is a bit weird that there is a global hierarchy of NSs with
symlinks to actual NSs located in some random /proc/PID/ns/pid
directories. It would be better to have a global tree with actual
directories and process directories would have symlinks to some subdirs
in this global tree.
2) The naming can be changed for even more trivial NSs traversal.
If the hierarchy is as following --
-- then it is more simple to traverse the tree as child NSs are all
files in pidnsXXX/children/, not all files of the mask pidns[0-9]+.
