Re: libvirt-lxc: Permission issue of /proc/net

Hi Daniel,
My XML has an <interface> section. According to documentation https://libvirt.org/drvlxc.html#securenetworking I have also tried with and without <privnet/> parameter, but still files under /proc/net is owned by user: nobody.
As might be expected there is no such problem in privileged containers, as root user is same as on host and files in /proc/net is then owned by root, but to follow best practices I would like to use unprivileged containers.
I've used Fedora 33 as host and container. Could you check if this is reproducible on your setup?

We already unshare netns when there is an <interface> in your XML
config for the container. Is that still leaving the permissions
issues ? If so maybe its an ordering issue for the unshare.
