user namespace: add unshare
This patch enables the unshare of user namespaces. It adds a new clone flag CLONE_NEWUSER and implements copy_user_ns() which resets the current user_struct and adds a new root user (uid == 0) For now, unsharing the user namespace allows a process to reset its user_struct accounting and uid 0 in the new user namespace should be contained using appropriate means, for instance selinux The plan, when the full support is complete (all uid checks covered), is to keep the original user's rights in the original namespace, and let a process become uid 0 in the new namespace, with full capabilities to the new namespace.
