Just from a containers point of view, I think this is something we'll
need to fix up in the near future if it stays in the current form.

Instead of having a global tracking, perhaps we could have a per-user
limit tracked in 'struct user'. The plans are to ensure that two
containers' users "dave" each have a different 'struct user', so that
seems to be a decent place to track it.

Also, is a read-only sysctl really the best way to get the number of
user mounts back out of the kernel? What would you use it for?

Do you need any special logic for setting 'max_user_mounts' in the case
where it gets set _below_ 'nr_user_mounts'?

One little nitpick on the patch layout: It's a wee bit difficult to
audit how the set function is used vs the clear one when its users don't
come until the later patches. It might be worth introducing the users
here, too.
