userns: Make the count of user namespaces per user
Add a structure that is per user and per user ns and use it to hold the count of user namespaces. This makes prevents one user from creating denying service to another user by creating the maximum number of user namespaces. Rename the sysctl export of the maximum count from /proc/sys/userns/max_user_namespaces to /proc/sys/user/max_user_namespaces to reflect that the count is now per user. Signed-off-by: "Eric W.
