I think it may be safe by luck. If mqueuefs had any mount options this
would allow them to be changed.

Looking at the code there is another issue. sb->s_user_ns is getting
set to &init_user_ns instead of ns->user_ns. That will cause other
operations to fail like mount -o remount to fail that should not.

So I think the fix needs a little more work.
