[PATCH 4/20] Introduce MS_KERNMOUNT flag

This flag tells the .get_sb callback that this is a kern_mount() call
so that it can trust *data pointer to be valid in-kernel one. If this
flag is passed from the user process, it is cleared since the *data
pointer is not a valid kernel object.

Running a few steps forward - this will be needed for proc to create the
superblock and store a valid pid namespace on it during the namespace
creation. The reason, why the namespace cannot live without proc mount
is described in the appropriate patch.
