* to be shared by default namespace separated by colon. Example: "".
* The library_search_path is the search path for anonymous namespace. The anonymous namespace
* is used in the case when linker cannot identify the caller of dlopen/dlsym. This happens
* for the code not loaded by dynamic linker; for example calls from the mono-compiled code.

/* A regular namespace is the namespace with a custom search path that does
* not impose any restrictions on the location of native libraries.
/* An isolated namespace requires all the libraries to be on the search path
* or under permitted_when_isolated_path. The search path is the union of
* ld_library_path and default_library_path.
/* The shared namespace clones the list of libraries of the caller namespace upon creation
* which means that they are shared between namespaces - the caller namespace and the new one
* will use the same copy of a library if it was loaded prior to android_create_namespace call.
* Note that libraries loaded after the namespace is created will not be shared.
* Shared namespaces can be isolated or regular. Note that they do not inherit the search path nor
* permitted_path from the caller's namespace.
/* This flag instructs linker to enable grey-list workaround for the namespace.
* See http://b/26394120 for details.
* Creates new linker namespace.
* ld_library_path and default_library_path represent the search path
* for the libraries in the namespace.
* The libraries in the namespace are searched by folowing order:
* 1. ld_library_path (Think of this as namespace-local LD_LIBRARY_PATH)
* 2. In directories specified by DT_RUNPATH of the "needed by" binary.
* 3. deault_library_path (This of this as namespace-local default library path)
* When type is ANDROID_NAMESPACE_TYPE_ISOLATED the resulting namespace requires all of
* the libraries to be on the search path or under the permitted_when_isolated_path;
* the search_path is ld_library_path:default_library_path. Note that the
* permitted_when_isolated_path path is not part of the search_path and
* does not affect the search order. It is a way to allow loading libraries from specific
* locations when using absolute path.
* If a library or any of its dependencies are outside of the permitted_when_isolated_path
* and search_path, and it is not part of the public namespace dlopen will fail.

* shared libraries. These are the libraries which are accessible from
* namespace 'from' but loaded within namespace 'to' context.
* When to namespace is nullptr this function establishes a link between
* 'from' namespace and the default namespace.
* The lookup order of the libraries in namespaces with links is following:
* 1. Look inside current namespace using 'this' namespace search path.
* 2. Look in linked namespaces
* 2.1. Perform soname check - if library soname is not in the list of shared
* libraries sonames skip this link, otherwise
* 2.2. Search library using linked namespace search path. Note that this
* step will not go deeper into linked namespaces for this library but
* will do so for DT_NEEDED libraries.

* null terminator, this function will abort. There is currently no way to find
* out what the required buffer size is. At the time of this writing, PATH_MAX
* is sufficient and used by all callers of this function.
