SubjectRe: [PATCH]: exec: avoid propagating PF_NO_SETAFFINITY into userspace child

Perhaps yes. People want to run the core handler in the namespace of
the crashed task. And (perhaps) even dumping to the file should use
per-namespace ->root/etc.

(and of course core_pattern[] should not be global, but this is
another story).

And there are other potential users. Say, nfsd user-mode helpers wants
to have the "right" mnt (at least) namespace.

But again, this all needs a lot of discussions. Even the API is not
actually clear. As for implementation, we could probably even force
->child_reaper (the subnamespace's init) to fork/exec the usermode
helper in this case. Or a namespace should explicitly create a thread
which should do this.
