vfs: Carefully propogate mounts across user namespaces
As a matter of policy MNT_READONLY should not be changable if the original mounter had more privileges than creator of the mount namespace. Add the flag CL_UNPRIVILEGED to note when we are copying a mount from a mount namespace that requires more privileges to a mount namespace that requires fewer privileges. When the CL_UNPRIVILEGED flag is set cause clone_mnt to set MNT_NO_REMOUNT if any of the mnt flags that should never be changed are set. This protects both mount propagation and the initial creation of a less privileged mount namespace.
