[PATCH v3 03/25] proc: add /proc/<pid>/fsgid_map

The /proc/<pid>/fsgid_map file can be written once to setup an fsgid mapping
for a user namespace. Writing to this file has the same restrictions as writing
to /proc/<pid>/fsgid_map.

root at e1-vm:/# cat /proc/13023/fsgid_map
         0     300000     100000

Fsid mappings have always been around. They are currently always identical to
the id mappings for a user namespace. This means, currently whenever an fsid
needs to be looked up the kernel will use the id mapping of the user namespace.
With the introduction of fsid mappings the kernel will now lookup fsids in the
fsid mappings of the user namespace. If no fsid mapping exists the kernel will
continue looking up fsids in the id mappings of the user namespace. Hence, if a
system supports fsid mappings through /proc/<pid>/fs*id_map and a container
runtime is not aware of fsid mappings it or does not use them it will it will
continue to work just as before.
