Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace

Pull namespace fix from Eric Biederman:
 "Benjamin Coddington noticed an unkillable busy loop in the kernel that
  anyone who is sufficiently motivated can trigger. This bug did not
  exist in earlier kernels making this bug a regression.

  I have tested the change personally and confirmed that the bug exists
  and that the fix works. This fix has been picked up by linux-next and
  hopefully the automated testing bots and no problems have been
  reported from those sources.

  Ordinarily I would let something like this sit a little longer but I
  am going to be away at Linux Plumbers the rest of this week and I am
  afraid if I don't send the pull request now this fix will get lost"
