Yes, /dev/kmsg is per user namespace, and per syslog ns, too.

Ah.. I think your question targets at devkmsg_writev function, right?
You remind me that it's really an issue. Printk_emit in devkmsg_writev
should not use init_syslog_ns as its syslog_ns but current_user_ns->syslog_ns.

In 1st version, current_syslog_ns was used in vprintk_emit. In this version,
the interface vprintk_emit has changed, but this patch misses that.
I will fix it.

Thanks for your reminder. :)
