forgot to say it's tested on ar71xx with CC (and also on ubuntu 14.04)

there seem to be a way to escape from the rebind mount jail that QCA has

more than one ;) can you share? (with root rights you can kexec, mount
/dev, ...)
that's why you really need to limit rights with capabilities drop or
seccomp filter

with my patches you don't see all the bind mount anymore ("in the host"),
they are only in the jail mount namespace.

to see the mounts inside the jail you can still do
cat /proc/<jailed process pid>/mounts

what problem are you fixing with jailfs? (real question/to be sure there is
no simpler solution)
