Subject[PATCH RESEND 4/4] sys_unshare: simplify the not-really-implemented CLONE_THREAD/SIGHAND/VM code
Cleanup: kill the dead code which does nothing but complicates the code
and confuses the reader.

sys_unshare(CLONE_THREAD/SIGHAND/VM) is not really implemented, and I doubt
very much it will ever work. At least, nobody even tried since the original
"unshare system call -v5: system call handler function" commit
99d1419d96d7df9cfa56bc977810be831bd5ef64 was applied more than 4 years ago.

And the code is not consistent. unshare_thread() always fails unconditionally,
while unshare_sighand() and unshare_vm() pretend to work if there is nothing
to unshare.

Remove unshare_thread(), unshare_sighand(), unshare_vm() helpers and related
variables and add a simple CLONE_THREAD | CLONE_SIGHAND| CLONE_VM check into
check_unshare_flags().
Also, move the "CLONE_NEWNS needs CLONE_FS" check from check_unshare_flags()
to sys_unshare(). This looks more consistent and matches the similar
do_sysvsem check in sys_unshare().

Note: with or without this patch "atomic_read(mm->mm_users) > 1" can give
a false positive due to get_task_mm().
