This would be interesting. You're talking about partial jailing, with
some kernel functionality in UML and some provided by the host.
I would start by stripping down the UML config to see how much you can
get rid of through the config process.
Then we can start thinking about what you want the host to do and how best
to poke holes in UML to allow that.
