forkdns provides a specialised DNS server designed for relaying A and PTR queries.
* This file is a bit funny. The goal here is to use setns() to manipulate * files inside the container, so we don't have to reason about the paths to * make sure they don't escape (we can simply rely on the kernel for * correctness). Unfortunately, you can't setns() to a mount namespace with a * multi-threaded program, which every golang binary is. However, by declaring * our init as an initializer, we can capture process control before it is * transferred to the golang runtime, so we can then setns() as we'd like * before golang has a chance to set up any threads. So, we implement two new * lxd fork* commands which are captured here, and take a file on the host fs * and copy it into the container ns. * * An alternative to this would be to move this code into a separate binary, * which of course has problems of its own when it comes to packaging (how do * we find the binary, what do we do if someone does file push and it is * missing, etc.). After some discussion, even though the embedded method is * somewhat convoluted, it was preferred.
