mnt ant uts namespaces return NULL right but this is not true for ipc namespace
which returns -ENOMEM. user namespace returns -EINVAL if CONFIG_USER_NS is not
selected. I expect pid namespace to do same and net namespace to do even more.

I will certainly do and change mnt ant uts namespaces to return -ENOMEM but
we will still require the patch below.

it's in the -mm stack.
