It should not require anything beyond what kernel/glibc provides - we
even build our own /bin/sh for in-container use.  All the
containerization code is in support/test-container.c.  However, some
kernels and/or OSs are *configured* (i.e. for security reasons) to
disallow certain types of namespace unsharing - those should be detected
by test-container and flagged as unsupported tests.

By "container" I mean a simple filesystem/pid namespace using unshare,
sort of a fancy chroot() but it changes your UID and PID also.

for some background info.
