Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://
Pull namespace updates from Eric Biederman: "This is a bunch of small changes built against 3.16-rc6. The most significant change for users is the first patch which makes setns drmatically faster by removing unneded rcu handling. The next chunk of changes are so that "mount -o remount,.." will not allow the user namespace root to drop flags on a mount set by the system wide root. Aks this forces read-only mounts to stay read-only, no-dev mounts to stay no-dev, no-suid mounts to stay no-suid, no-exec mounts to stay no exec and it prevents unprivileged users from messing with a mounts atime settings. I have included my test case as the last patch in this series so people performing backports can verify this change works correctly. The next change fixes a bug in NFS that was discovered while auditing nsproxy users for the first optimization. Today you can oops the kernel by reading /proc/fs/nfsfs/{servers,volumes} if you are clever with pid namespaces. I rebased and fixed the build of the !CONFIG_NFS_FS case yesterday when a build bot caught my typo. Given that no one to my knowledge bases anything on my tree fixing the typo in place seems more responsible that requiring a typo-fix to be backported as well. The last change is a small semantic cleanup introducing /proc/thread-self and pointing /proc/mounts and /proc/net at it. This prevents several kinds of problemantic corner cases. It is a user-visible change so it has a minute chance of causing regressions so the change to /proc/mounts and /proc/net are individual one line commits that can be trivially reverted. Unfortunately I lost and could not find the email of the original reporter so he is not credited. From at least one perspective this change to /proc/net is a refgression fix to allow pthread /proc/net uses that were broken by the introduction of the network namespace" * 'for-linus' of git:// proc: Point /proc/mounts at /proc/thread-self/mounts instead of /proc/self/mounts proc: Point /proc/net at /proc/thread-self/net instead of /proc/self/net proc: Implement /proc/thread-self to point at the directory of the current thread proc: Have net show up under /proc/<tgid>/task/<tid> NFS: Fix /proc/fs/nfsfs/servers and /proc/fs/nfsfs/volumes mnt: Add tests for unprivileged remount cases that have found to be faulty mnt: Change the default remount atime from relatime to the existing value mnt: Correct permission checks in do_remount mnt: Move the test for MNT_LOCK_READONLY from change_mount_flags into do_remount mnt: Only change user settable mount flags in remount namespaces: Use task_lock and not rcu to protect nsproxy
