Cache user_ns in struct cred
If !CONFIG_USERNS, have current_user_ns() defined to (&init_user_ns). Get rid of _current_user_ns. This requires nsown_capable() to be defined in capability.c rather than as static inline in capability.h, so do that. Request_key needs init_user_ns defined at current_user_ns if !CONFIG_USERNS, so forward-declare that in cred.h if !CONFIG_USERNS at current_user_ns() define. Compile-tested with and without CONFIG_USERNS. Signed-off-by: Serge E. Hallyn <serge.hallyn@canonical.com> [ This makes a huge performance difference for acl_permission_check(), up to 30%. And that is one of the hottest kernel functions for loads that are pathname-lookup heavy. ] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
