Oh, wow, okay. That needs to change at some point but I agree it's
out of scope for this patchset. In the meantime I might suggest using
something other than AppArmor as an example here.

I can't think of a case where you would ever not know if you need to
allocate a local context at the start. If you are unsure, get in
touch and we can work it out.

I appreciate the desire to move forward, and while I can't speak for
everyone, I'll do my best to work with you to find a good solution.
If you get stuck or aren't sure you know how to reach me :)

As a start, I might suggest looking at some of the recent audit
container ID patchsets from Richard; while they have had some issues,
they should serve as a basic example of what we mean when we talk
about "local contexts" and how they should be used.
