sysctl: Infrastructure for per namespace sysctls
This patch implements the basic infrastructure for per namespace sysctls. A list of lists of sysctl headers is added, allowing each namespace to have it's own list of sysctl headers. Each list of sysctl headers has a lookup function to find the first sysctl header in the list, allowing the lists to have a per namespace instance. register_sysct_root is added to tell sysctl.c about additional lists of sysctl_headers. As all of the users are expected to be in kernel no unregister function is provided. sysctl_head_next is updated to walk through the list of lists. __register_sysctl_paths is added to add a new sysctl table on a non-default sysctl list. The only intrusive part of this patch is propagating the information to decided which list of sysctls to use for sysctl_check_table. Signed-off-by: Eric W.
