     NAME
          pam_namespace_helper - Helper binary that creates home
          directories

     SYNOPSIS
          pam_namespace_helper

     DESCRIPTION
          pam_namespace_helper is a helper program for the
          pam_namespace module that sets up a private namespace for a
          session with polyinstantiated directories. The helper
          ensures that the namespace mount points exist before they
          are started to be used for the polyinstantiated directories.
          Mount points for home directories (lines with $HOME) are not
          created.

          pam_namespace_helper should be run by systemd at system
          startup. It should also be run by the administrator after
          defining the polyinstantiated directories but before
          enabling them.
