fs: Call d_automount with the filesystems creds
Seth Forshee reported a mount regression in nfs autmounts with "fs: Add user namespace member to struct super_block". It turns out that the assumption that current->cred is something reasonable during mount while necessary to improve support of unprivileged mounts is wrong in the automount path. To fix the existing filesystems override current->cred with the init_cred before calling d_automount and restore current->cred after d_automount completes. To support unprivileged mounts would require a more nuanced cred selection, so fail on unprivileged mounts for the time being. As none of the filesystems that currently set FS_USERNS_MOUNT implement d_automount this check is only good for preventing future problems.
