Subject: [PATCH v6 1/2] security: tty: Add owner user namespace to tty_struct

This patch adds struct user_namespace *owner_user_ns to the tty_struct.
Then it is set to current_user_ns() in the alloc_tty_struct function.

This is done to facilitate capability checks against the original user
namespace that allocated the tty.

E.g. ns_capable(tty->owner_user_ns,CAP_SYS_ADMIN)

This combined with the use of user namespace's will allow hardening
protections to be built to mitigate container escapes that utilize TTY
ioctls such as TIOCSTI.

See: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1411256
