Or you've done the same to my reply. I'm not saying that in the
posted form the instances are the same; I'm saying that they are
all equivalent to exact same code - ns_capable(fc->user_ns, CAP_SYS_ADMIN),
that is.

+static int proc_mount_permission(void)
+ struct pid_namespace *ns = task_active_pid_ns(current);
+ return ns_capable(ns->user_ns, CAP_SYS_ADMIN) ? 0 : -EPERM;

compare with
ctx->pid_ns = get_pid_ns(task_active_pid_ns(current));
fc->user_ns = get_user_ns(ctx->pid_ns->user_ns);
in proc_init_fs_context(). Notice anything? With those 'orrible
API changes proc_mount_permissions() and userns_mount_permission()
can actually become identical. Because the default case is
to leave fc->user_ns set to current_user_ns().

cgroup case:
+static int cgroup_mount_permission(void)
+ struct cgroup_namespace *ns = current->nsproxy->cgroup_ns;
+ return ns_capable(ns->user_ns, CAP_SYS_ADMIN) ? 0 : -EPERM;

ctx->ns = current->nsproxy->cgroup_ns;
fc->user_ns = get_user_ns(ctx->ns->user_ns);
in cgroup_init_fs_context(). IOW, again your instances fold together.

ctx->ipc_ns = get_ipc_ns(current->nsproxy->ipc_ns);
fc->user_ns = get_user_ns(ctx->ipc_ns->user_ns);
in mqueue_init_fs_context() and
+static int mqueue_mount_permission(void)
+ struct ipc_namespace *ns = current->nsproxy->ipc_ns;
+ return ns_capable(ns->user_ns, CAP_SYS_ADMIN) ? 0 : -EPERM;

Same situation.

+static int sysfs_mount_permission(void)
+ struct net *net = current->nsproxy->net_ns;
+ return ns_capable(net->user_ns, CAP_SYS_ADMIN) ? 0 : -EPERM;

kfc->ns_tag = netns = kobj_ns_grab_current(KOBJ_NS_TYPE_NET);
if (netns) {
fc->user_ns = get_user_ns(netns->user_ns);
Now, _that_ is interesting. Here the variants diverge - in case
USER_NS && !NET_NS fc->user_ns is left at current_user_ns().

That, BTW, is the only case where the old checks are left in:
if (!(fc->sb_flags & SB_KERNMOUNT)) {
if (!kobj_ns_current_may_mount(KOBJ_NS_TYPE_NET))
return -EPERM;
in sysfs_init_fs_context() papers over that case and I'd love to
get rid of that irregularity. Which, AFAICS, can be done by
fc->user_ns = get_user_ns(current->nsproxy->net_ns->user_ns);
whatever the .config we have. On NET_NS ones it'll be identical
to ->user_ns of what kobj_ns_grab_current(KOBJ_NS_TYPE_NET) returns,
on !NET_NS it'll get mount_capable() do the right thing without
that wart with init_fs_context() doing that extra check.

So far it looks like *in this particular case* complexities would be
reduced - with one exception all your ->permission() instances become

Moreover, even in that case we still get the right overall behaviour
with the same instance...

So do you have any specific objections to behaviour in vfs.git #fixes
and/or to adding

on top of that? The last one shouldn't change the behaviour, but it
certainly looks like a nice wartectomy; not #fixes material, though.
