ipc/msgutil.c includes security.h which includes fs.h, so we should be
able to drop the one in ipc_namespace.h. The one in utsname.h is
there for init/version.c and needed AFAICS.

The one in capability.h should be able to go when has_capability* are
turned into functions. They couldn't be turned into static functions
in capability.h (left as exercise for reader), but they can be made
full-fledged functions in kernel/capability.c. I will do that in a
follow-on patch and try to remove the extra init_user_ns defines as
well.

thanks,
