Makes sense. Will do.

Ah. I see.
I suppose it was changed probably for the privileged_wrt_inode_uidgid()
called by capable_wrt_inode_uidgid(). But as you pointed out, that checks
against current_user_ns, which is wrong. I would just create another
wrapper like capable_userns_wrt_inode_uidgid(), which takes an
additional parameter of (struct user_namespace *), to be able to check for
both ns_capable() and privileged_wrt_inode_uidgid().

Thanks,
Dongsu
