It is an invariant that if you have caps in mm->user_ns you will
also be capable_write_inode_uidgid of all files that a process exec's.

My third patch winds up changing mm->user_ns to maintain this invariant.

It is also true that Willy convinced me while this check is trivial it
will break historic uses so I have replaced this patch with:
"ptrace: Don't allow accessing an undumpable mm.
