Subject[PATCH] fs/sync.c : Add CAP_SYS_ADMIN checking before sync
The process, supposed in one container, can't flush the metadata
and data of the all host's partitions without CAP_SYS_ADMIN
capability, like sys_mount is doing. The checking will prevent some
vicious programs impacting IO sequnces of those partitions,
particularly, the ones which can't be accessed in the container.
