Bug Description

== Comment: #0 - Breno Henrique Leitao <email address hidden> - 2017-05-11 15:30:52 ==
The PR_DUMPABLE flag causes the pid related paths of the proc file system to be owned by ROOT.

    The implementation of pthread_set/getname_np however needs access to /proc/<pid>/task/<tid>/comm. If PR_DUMPABLE is false this implementation is locked out.

    This patch installs a special permission function for the file "comm" that grants read and write access to all threads of the same group regardless of the ownership of the inode. For all other threads the function falls back to the generic inode permission check.

Nvidia-docker issue on ppc64le:

1b3044e39a89cb1d4d5313da477e8dfea2b5232d

This is fixed by commit 1b3044e39a89cb1d4d5313da477e8dfea2b5232d

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-failed-xenial'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
