Hi, Cedric, Serge.

I have noticed, that you have removed config options for
uts and ipc namespaces but kept one for user namespace.

What's the policy about what namespaces should have config
option? I thought, that the only code that is worth having
under option is clone/destroy one to save .text size for
people who don't need them (embedded).

Thanks,
Pavel

yes .text size is important for the embedded people but performance 
also. so if perf is not impacted and .text increase is reasonable, 
it's interesting to remove the config option and clarify the code
at the same time. This was the case of uts and ipc ns.  

user ns is far from complete and should be kept experimental.
