Subject[PATCH] uts_namespace: Move boot_id in uts namespace
Date
Currently the same boot_id is reported for all containers running
on a host node, including the host node itself. Even after restarting
a container it will still have the same persistent boot_id.

This can cause troubles in cases where you have multiple containers
from the same cluster on one host node. The software inside each
container will get the same boot_id and thus fail to join the cluster,
after the first container from the node has already joined.

UTS namespace on other hand keeps the machine specific data, so it
seems to be the correct place to move the boot_id and instantiate it,
so each container will have unique id for its own boot lifetime, if
it has its own uts namespace.
