userns: Store uid and gid types in vfs structures with kuid_t and kgid_t types
The conversion of all of the users is not done yet there are too many to change in one go and leave the code reviewable. For now I change just the header and a few trivial users and rely on CONFIG_UIDGID_STRICT_TYPE_CHECKS not being set to ensure that the code will still compile during the transition. Helper functions i_uid_read, i_uid_write, i_gid_read, i_gid_write are added so that in most cases filesystems can avoid the complexities of multiple user namespaces and can concentrate on moving their raw numeric values into and out of the vfs data structures.
