Can't understand.

user_ns_map_uid() should translate uid_t from one namespace to another,
in this case the namespace is the same.

user_ns_map_uid(cred->user_ns, cred) must be the identical mapping,
no matter how we change the implementation.

What I think you need is
user_ns_map_uid(current_user_ns(), filp->f_owner.cred), the only
problem is that f_owner.cred doesn't exist.
