Subject[patch 02/10] unprivileged mounts: allow unprivileged umount
From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>

The owner doesn't need sysadmin capabilities to call umount().

Similar behavior as umount(8) on mounts having "user=UID" option in /etc/mtab.
The difference is that umount also checks /etc/fstab, presumably to exclude
another mount on the same mountpoint.
