Do these files describe the mapping into the init_user_ns or into the
parent namespace? Because in the second case, if you create a
user-namespace with a non-identity mapping and inside of it a user-ns
with an identity-mapping, your detect_userns() will return 0, even
though you run in a user-namespace.

Thanks
