Here I handle a case when ns is init_user_ns. init_user_ns doesn't have
a parent, so we need to return an error. We can't return ENOENT in all
cases, because we don't want to expose "that file descriptor is for the
root user namespace" to unprivileged users.
(Trevor suggested to add this check and it looks resonable for me too).
