[PATCH v4 01/11] user_ns: 3 new LSM hooks for user namespace operations

This commit implements 3 new LSM hooks that provide the means for LSMs
to embed their own security context within user namespace, effectively
creating some sort of a user_ns related security namespace.

The first one to take advantage of this mechanism is Smack.

The hooks has been documented in the in the security.h below.
