You're duplicating work that is already going on - we've been
talking about this stuff on the XFS list and reviewing patches for
the last 3-4 weeks for this.

http://oss.sgi.com/pipermail/xfs/2013-July/028467.html

Basically, the discussion we are currently having is whether project
IDs should be exposed to user namespaces at all. e.g:

http://oss.sgi.com/pipermail/xfs/2013-July/028497.html
http://oss.sgi.com/pipermail/xfs/2013-July/028551.html

"Basically, until we have worked out *if* project quotas can be used
safely within user namespaces, we need to reject any attempt to use
them from within a user namespace container."

i.e. the whole "project IDs are part of user namespaces because of
quotas" looks like a bad decision to have been made. Project IDs are
independent of users and groups and can be used to account for usage
across discontiguous directory and permission heirarchies, so trying
to contain them to a "user namespace" really matches their
functionality.

The problem is not a question of how to implement mappings - it's a
question of how to deal with fundamental impedence mismatch of
user namespaces and project IDs....

Cheers,

Dave.
