Bug Description

Should we expect 'running-in-container' to report 'lxc' to non-root users?

root@t2:~# running-in-container
lxc
root@t2:~# su - ubuntu
ubuntu@t2:~$ running-in-container
ubuntu@t2:~$

ubuntu@t2:~$ cat /run/container_type
lxc
ubuntu@t2:~$ ls -l /run/container_type
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4 Apr 7 13:59 /run/container_type

ubuntu@t2:~$ cat /etc/os-release
