pam_namespace_helper is a helper program for the pam_namespace
module that sets up a private namespace for a session with
polyinstantiated directories. The helper ensures that the
namespace mount points exist before they are started to be used
for the polyinstantiated directories. Mount points for home
directories (lines with $HOME) are not created.
pam_namespace_helper should be run by systemd at system startup.
It should also be run by the administrator after defining the
polyinstantiated directories but before enabling them.
