From: Serge Hallyn <serge.hallyn at ubuntu.com>

allowing root in a non-init user namespace to mount it.  This should
now be safe, because

1. non-init-root cannot mount a previously unbound subsystem
2. the task doing the mount must be privileged with respect to the
   user namespace owning the cgroup namespace
3. the mounted subsystem will have its current cgroup as the root dentry.
   the permissions will be unchanged, so tasks will receive no new
   privilege over the cgroups which they did not have on the original
   mounts.
