   HEAD: cfb2f6f6e0ba11ea7b263d6b69c170c4b32ac0ea Revert "mqueue: switch to on-demand creation of internal mount"

This fixes a regression that came in the merge window for v4.16.  The
problem is that the permissions for mounting and using the mqueuefs
filesystem are broken.  The necessary permission check is missing
letting people who should not be able to mount mqueuefs mount mqueuefs.
The field sb->s_user_ns is set incorrectly not allowing the mounter of
mqueuefs to remount and otherwise have proper control over the
filesystem.

Al Viro and I see the path to the necessary fixes differently and I am
not even certain at this point he actually sees all of the necessary
fixes.  Given a couple weeks we can probably work something out but I
don't see the review being resolved in time for the final v4.16.  I
don't want v4.16 shipping with a nasty regression.  So unfortunately I
am sending a revert.

Eric

The issue is a lot deeper than a missing permission check.  sb->s_user_ns
was is improperly set as well.  So in addition to the filesystem being
mounted when it should not be mounted, so things are not allow that should
be.

We are practically to the release of 4.16 and there is no agreement between
Al Viro and myself on what the code should looks like to fix things properly.
So revert the code to what it was before so that we can take our time
and discuss this properly.
