Subject[PATCH v6 2/5] fuse: Fail all requests with invalid uids or gids
Upon a cursory examinination the uid and gid of a fuse request are
necessary for correct operation. Failing a fuse request where those
values are not reliable seems a straight forward and reliable means of
ensuring that fuse requests with bad data are not sent or processed.

In most cases the vfs will avoid actions it suspects will cause
an inode write back of an inode with an invalid uid or gid. But that does
not map precisely to what fuse is doing, so test for this and solve
this at the fuse level as well.

Performing this work in fuse_req_init_context is cheap as the code is
already performing the translation here and only needs to check the
result of the translation to see if things are not representable in
a form the fuse server can handle.
