Heh, well cart before horse: we're still trying to work out how to do
it correctly, so we can't really document it until we've figured that
bit out.

Once that's all sorted, the output is likely something in
Documentation/ explaining how to namespace a pseudo filesystem (since
we have quite a few of them in the kernel) rather than a commit message
which will get hard to find the next time someone wants to do this.
