Subject: [PATCH 1/4] uapi, fs: make all new mount api fds cloexec by default

From: Christian Brauner <christian@...uner.io>

This makes all file descriptors returned from new syscalls of the new mount
api cloexec by default.

>>From a userspace perspective it is rarely the case that fds are supposed to
be inherited across exec. Having them not cloexec by default forces
userspace to remember to pass the <SPECIFIC>_CLOEXEC flag along or to
invoke fcntl() on the fd to prevent leaking it. And leaking the fd is a
much bigger issue than forgetting to remove the cloexec flag and failing to
inherit the fd.
For old fd types we can't break userspace. But for new ones we should
whenever reasonable make them cloexec by default (Examples of this policy
are the new seccomp notify fds and also pidfds.). If userspace wants to
inherit fds across exec they can remove the O_CLOEXEC flag and so opt in to
inheritance explicitly.

This patch also has the advantage that we can get rid of all the special
flags per file descriptor type for the new mount api. In total this lets us
remove 4 flags:
- FSMOUNT_CLOEXEC
- FSOPEN_CLOEXEC
- FSPICK_CLOEXEC
- OPEN_TREE_CLOEXEC
