Why? This sounds like a left over from when we were checking permissions.

So in principle I agree, but in detail I disagree.

capable(CAP_SETUID) should be required to leave MNT_NOSUID clear.
capable(CAP_MKNOD) should be required to leave MNT_NODEV clear.

I.e. We should not special case this as a user mount but rather
simply check to see if the user performing the mount has the appropriate
capabilities to allow the flags.

How we properly propagate MNT_NOSUID and MNT_NODEV in the context of a
user id namespace is still a puzzle to me. Because to the user capability
should theoretically at least be namespace local. However until we
get to the user id namespace we don't have that problem.

Can't this just be:
static bool permit_mount(struct nameidata *nd, uid_t *mnt_uid)
{
*mnt_uid = current->fsuid;
if ((nd->mnt->mnt_uid != current->fsuid) && !capable(CAP_SETUID))
return false;
return true;
}
