SubjectRE: [PATCH] Smack: replace capable() with ns_capable()
Date
So, Do you agree to allow the process to change its own labels?

Now, init process(eg. systemd) can't be running in user namespace properly
because it can't be assign smack label to service.

If you agree, I'll upload another patch limited to this.

It's not that easy.

With this change Smack becomes completely insecure. You can change rules as an unprivileged user without any problems now.
What you want is Smack namespace that was made to remedy exactly this issue (e.g. changing own labels inside a namespace).
