Re: [libvirt] [RFC PATCH 2/2] LXC: Create ro overlay mounts only if we're not within a user namespace

This is a problem with the way we're initializing mounts in the
user namespace. We need to ensure that the initial mounts setup
by libvirt can't be changed by admin inside the container. Preventing
the container admin from remounting or unmounting these mounts is key
to security.

IIUC, the only way to ensure this is to start a new user namespace
/after/ setting up all mounts.
