While I think it's unlikely that the list handled by
unshare_nsproxy_namespaces() is going to change, I'd still prefer that
the logic of this test be reversed so that the nnp-allowed flags are
listed instead of the CAP_SYS_ADMIN-required ones so that it will
default to disallowing new flags. It's a little less readable, but
maybe something like this (untested):

unsigned long handled_mask = (CLONE_NEWNS | CLONE_NEWUTS | CLONE_NEWIPC |
CLONE_NEWNET);
unsigned long npp_mask = (CLONE_NEWUTS | CLONE_NEWIPC);

if (!(unshare_flags & handled_mask))
return 0;

if ( !(current->no_new_privs &&
!(unshare_flags & (handled_mask ^ npp_mask))) &&
!capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN))
return -EPERM;
...

This also has the side-effect of removing the double-check of
capable() in some cases.
