Subject: [PATCH v2] selftests: capabilities: namespace create varies for root and normal user

This patchset fixes TODO:
"If we're already root, we could skip creating the userns."

Change namespace creation for root and non-root
user differently in create_and_enter_ns() function
in this file:
tools/testing/selftests/capabilities/test_execve.c

Test result with root user:
$sudo make  TARGETS="capabilities" kselftest
 ...
 TAP version 13
 1..1
 timeout set to 45
 selftests: capabilities: test_execve
 TAP version 13
 1..12
 [RUN]       +++ Tests with uid == 0 +++
 [NOTE]      Using global UIDs for tests
 [RUN]       Root => ep
 ...
 ok 12 Passed
 Totals: pass:12 fail:0 xfail:0 xpass:0 skip:0 error:0
