Description

Debugfs cannot be used in a non-default netns. Also the current implementation of debugfs files requires large blocks of memory to copy the data to userspace.

Instead all data from nc_nodes should be made dumpable via netlink.

This ticket is assigned to the author of the original code. But everyone can implement the required code

It is very unlikely that this will be implemented anytime soon and that someone will miss it when debugfs is removed. Rejecting this for now.
