Eric W. Biederman - April 4, 2013, 3:28 a.m.
Now that uids and gids are completely encapsulated in kuid_t
and kgid_t we no longer need to pass struct cred which allowed
us to test both the uid and the user namespace for equality.

Passing struct cred potentially allows us to pass the entire group
list as BSD does but I don't believe the cost of cache line misses
justifies retaining code for a future potential application.

Included in this patchset because there are trivial dependencies,
and since we are sort of arguing about this anyway.  This definitely is
not for stable.

I'll apply this to net-next once #1 and #2 propagate there.

Thanks!
