 From what I can see, this is basically setting a per-pidns core_pattern 
(which is hierarchically applied). I'm not sure this actually solves the 
more general problem (that usermode helper settings aren't generally 
namespace-aware) -- and what happens if you have processes in the same 
pidns that have different mount namespaces?

If we _had_ to do it like this I would think it makes more sense to pin 
it to mountns, but I was under the impression that someone was working 
on making usermode helpers play nicer with namespaces.

Just my $0.02.
