comment Pipe chain with devices
Usually such a device is there so that ioctl() calls can be made to control it, it's not necessarily how to get data in or out. I have seen hardware crypto use a separate process and a socket for data transfer.

comment Change date only for a single non-root user in Linux
Small beartrap with this approach, as you noted: filesystem timestamps will be "real", unless a process changes them directly via utime(). Sadly time is not handled by namespaces, though there was a UML related patch to unshare time, it was never merged. See lwn.net/Articles/180375

Nice one, this should work reliably since glibc-2.3.3.

libfaketime is a workable solution in most cases, i.e. exporting LD_PRELOAD in the login shell.
