sysctl: Pass useful parameters to sysctl permissions
- Current is implicitly avaiable so passing current->nsproxy isn't useful. - The ctl_table_header is needed to find how the sysctl table is connected to the rest of sysctl. - ctl_table_root is avaiable in the ctl_table_header so no need to it. With these changes it becomes possible to write a version of net_sysctl_permission that takes into account the network namespace of the sysctl table, an important feature in extending the user namespace.
