Using kuid's and kgid's throughout as your second patch does is best.
Conversion is only needed on normal filesystems because they have a
backing store and reside on disk. As accessfs appears not to have
backing store, storing things with kuid's and kgid's is the preferred
method.

Your first patch is buggy as it uses current_user_ns(). Something a
filesystem in general should not care about.

I don't see anything wrong with your second patch.

From what little I understand of accessfs, I expect you will want to
play with and come up to speed on namespaces, as namespaces change
the universe of objects you will be dealing with, in some subtle
but interesting ways. At least assuming anyone in who uses accessfs
is going to be using more than a single container.
