Unfortunately, some things do not work in an LXC user mode container. For
example, user space nfs server ganesha fails there because of an unsupported
system call. And a longer time ago, I read that an LXC root mode container is
completely insecure, with almost no protection between host and guest.
Therefore, I'd be very glad about patches for newer kernels.
