Description Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2022-04-17 14:55:57 UTC
Network interface attributes are exposed via /sys/class/net.

When a new network namespace is created, existing sysfs mounts are not updated to reflect the new set of network interfaces. Only new sysfs mounts will contain the correct interface list and their attributes.

Therefore, when FEATURES="network-namespace", Portage should mount a new sysfs instance at /sys.
