Subject[PATCH 4.9 049/109] libfs: Modify mount_pseudo_xattr to be clear it is not a userspace mount
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: "Eric W. Biederman" <ebiederm@xmission.com>


[ Upstream commit 75422726b0f717d67db3283c2eb5bc14fa2619c5 ]

Add MS_KERNMOUNT to the flags that are passed.
Use sget_userns and force &init_user_ns instead of calling sget so that
even if called from a weird context the internal filesystem will be
considered to be in the intial user namespace.

Luis Ressel reported that the the failure to pass MS_KERNMOUNT into
mount_pseudo broke his in development graphics driver that uses the
generic drm infrastructure. I am not certain the deriver was bug
free in it's usage of that infrastructure but since
mount_pseudo_xattr can never be triggered by userspace it is clearer
and less error prone, and less problematic for the code to be explicit.
