It makes the following patch much cleaner to read:
	[PATCH V6 08/10] fork: audit on creation of new namespace(s)
	https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/4/17/50

I was hoping it might also make a lot of other code cleaner, but most of
the other places where multiple CLONE_NEW* flags are used, not all six
are used together, but only 5 are used.  Ok, so it is helpful in 1 of 3:

It would actually be useful in check_unshare_flags():
	https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/v3.17/kernel/fork.c#L1791

but not in copy_namespaces() or unshare_nsproxy_namespaces():
	https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/v3.17/kernel/nsproxy.c#L130
	https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/v3.17/kernel/nsproxy.c#L183
