[3.5] docker: insecure opening of file-descriptor allows privilege escalation (CVE-2016-9962)
RunC allowed additional container processes via `runc exec` to be
ptraced by the pid 1 of the container.
This allows the main processes of the container, if running as root, to gain access to file-descriptors of these new
processes during the initialization and can lead to container escapes or modification of runC state before the process is fully placed inside the container.
