[PATCH 1/7] Add a user_namespace as creator/owner of uts_namespace

copy_process() handles CLONE_NEWUSER before the rest of the
namespaces.  So in the case of clone(CLONE_NEWUSER|CLONE_NEWUTS)
the new uts namespace will have the new user namespace as its
owner.  That is what we want, since we want root in that new
userns to be able to have privilege over it.
