It shouldn't be -EPERM,this will cause user confused.
The first time to write to the uid_map file is success,
and the second time,kernel will return -EPERM.actually
the user has right to write to the uid_map.

And if you think -EPERM is better,it's not necessary
to initialize the value of ret.because we set it to
-EPERM after we get mutex lock id_map_mutex.
