Hmm, actually user_namespace isn't in struct nsproxy any more,
since 18b6e0414e42d95183f07d8177e3ff0241abd825.

I think my original thought was that init_user_ns is pinned twice by
root_user - once as creator and once as the root user in it. In
which case it isn't right - the user_ns pins the task which created
it, the creator does not pin the user_ns it creates.
