[PATCH 06/24] fs: add is_userns_visible() helper

Introduce a helper which makes it possible to detect fileystems whose
superblock is visible in multiple user namespace. This currently only
means proc and sys. Such filesystems usually have special semantics so their
behavior will not be changed with the introduction of fsid mappings.
