I don't think that AC (or any other kernel maintainer) would ever
accept the chmod 000 hack to stop chroot escapes. Its just horrid!
AC has expressed strong opinions on not modifying the current
semantics of chroot to "fix" them too as it breaks current
I think that this needs careful thought before vserver goes for the
mainline kernel. Perhaps a new system call is needed - one based on
the BSD chroot maybe but called something else?
