Good point.  In addition, we can clean the code up a little by not
letting clone_mnt return NULL.  Compile-tested patch follows.  Though
really it starts to look like clone_mnt should be split into two
parts, with the original clone_mnt static inline, and the new clone_mnt
doing the permission check and return value conversion...

From: Serge E. Hallyn <serue@us.ibm.com>
Subject: [PATCH 1/1] userns: cleanups with clone_mnt

As Frederik Deweerdt points out, the Error: case in copy_tree()
can no longer have res==NULL, so remove that check.

Also make clone_mnt always return -ENOMEM in place of NULL.
