[PATCH v2 12/28] sys:__sys_setregid(): handle fsid mappings

Switch setregid() to lookup fsids in the fsid mappings. If no fsid mappings are
setup the behavior is unchanged, i.e. fsids are looked up in the id mappings.

During setregid() the kfsgid is set to the kegid corresponding the egid that is
requested by userspace. If the requested egid is -1 the kfsgid is reset to the
current kegid. For the latter case this means we need to lookup the
corresponding userspace egid corresponding to the current kegid in the id
mappings and translate this egid into the corresponding kfsgid in the fsid

The kfsid to cleanly handle userns visible filesystem is set as before.

We require that a user must have a valid fsid mapping for the target id. This
is consistent with how the setid calls work today without fsid mappings.
