SubjectRe: [PATCHv2 2/2] userns: control capabilities of some user namespaces

Here and at the definition below, please add a comment explaining
that a controlled cap is defined as not being in the sysctl.

Please add a comment explaining that a controlled ns
is one created by a user which did not have CAP_SYS_ADMIN
(or descended from such an ns).

I'd be curious to see the performance impact on this on a regular
workload (kernel build?) in a controlled ns.
