Ideally we avoid multiple capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN) calls by only doing it
once and saving the return value. capable() call's aren't that cheap.
Plus, we should decide whether this should trigger an audit event or
not: capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN) triggers an audit event,
ns_capable_noaudit(&init_user_ns, CAP_SYS_ADMIN) wouldn't.
