[Oneiric-Topic] user namespaces

The natty cycle was quite productive in terms of user namespace work.  The
overall development plan is at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UserNamespace.  For
the Oneiric cycle I think a reasonable goal is to complete the conversion
of all capable() and uid comparisons to do appropriate user namespace
comparisons, and the ability for a full filesystem to be owned by a user
namespace.  If things go well, we may also start uid mapping - which would
just about complete the kernel part of user namespace.
