Allow a single process to be forked directly into a container using a new
syscall, thereby 'booting' the container:

	pid_t pid = fork_into_container(int container_fd);

This process will be the 'init' process of the container.

Further attempts to fork into the container will be rejected.

Shouldn't there be a check between the current process' credentials and 
the destination container's credentials before allowing this to occur?
