Well, as I understand it, the point of zones is to delegate and reduce
power of root access. For instance, running insecure or
software packages far removed from other services, or hosting with each
user getting root.
OTOH, a) running the OpenAFS server shouldn't be impacted (as I
this is strictly client-side), and b) I wouldn't be totally optimistic
running the AFS client kernel module in the non-global zone anyway.
That does bring to mind something else, is the PAG namespace global
user-mode linux instances?
