AFAICS, what you are doing is essentially mount --rbind / / in infinite
loop in luserns. Which ends up eating all memory. There's any number
of ways to do the same. We can play whack-a-mole with them until the
kernel is completely ossified with accounting code of different sorts.
Or one can disable userns and be done with that.
