[PATCH 2/2] [oneiric CVE 2/2] Change check_ruid flag to a more reasonable type

The first interation of the patch for the check ruid flag at mount time
flag returned a full uid.  However the revised patch used the check_ruid
parameter solely as a boolean flag, but missed fixing the parameters type.

Change the parameter type to int instead of uid_t.
