RHEL has something like: iproute-2.6.32-20.el6.x86_64
The version v3.0.0 (an internal tag) has netns.  The relevant git commits are:

223f4d8 iproute2: Fail "ip netns add" on existing network namespaces.
2e8a07f iproute2: Auto-detect the presence of setns in libc
0dc34c7 iproute2: Add processless network namespace support

Using RH OpenStack with Qauntum network service manager requires namespaces to support isolated virtual networks overlapping IP address ranges.
Comment 2 Perry Myers 2013-05-20 12:51:30 EDT
This bug is simply to track testing of Quantum with the new version of iproute2 and netns enabled kernel.  Setting to TestOnly and TestBlocker and acking for 3.0 release

Any details about the unit testing which was completed would be most appreciated :-)
Comment 4 Ofer Blaut 2013-06-04 04:29:35 EDT
iproute-2.6.32-23.el6ost.netns.2.x86_64 is now supported.

I run Maru script that test ip netns support
