I took too long, but here it is finally! Should I add any documentation
about this new -N option to the manual?

Subject: [PATCH] linux-container: Add support for container network sharing.

* gnu/system/linux-container.scm (container-essential-services): If network is
to be shared with the host, remove network configuration files from etc
(containerized-operating-system): If network is to be shared with the host,
remove nscd service and map host's /var/run/nscd if it exists.
(container-script): If network is to be shared with the host, do not create
network namespace.
* guix/scripts/system.scm (system-derivation-for-action): Add
(perform-action): Add #:container-shared-network? argument.
(show-help): Add "-N, --network" help information.
(%options): Add network option.
(process-action): Call perform-action with #container-shared-network? argument.
