Eric, using the patch below I was able to spawn a user-namespace enabled container
using libvirt-lxc. :-)

I had to:
1. Disable the read-only mount of /proc/sys which is anyway useless in the user-namespace case.
2. Disable the /proc/sys/net/ipv{4,6} bind mounts, this ugly hack is only needed for the non user-namespace case.
3. Remove MS_RDONLY from the sysfs mount (For the non user-namespace case we'd have to keep this, though).

Daniel, I'd take this as a chance to disable all the MS_RDONLY games if user-namespace are configured.
With Eric's fixes they hurt us. And as I wrote many times before if root within the user-namespace
is able to do nasty things in /sys and /proc that's a plain kernel bug which needs fixing. There is no
point in mounting these read-only. Except for the case then no user-namespace is used.
