When mounting a filesystem on a block device there is currently
no verification that the user has appropriate access to the
device file passed to mount. This has not been an issue so far
since the user in question has always been root, but this must
be changed before allowing unprivileged users to mount in user
namespaces.

To do this, a new version of lookup_bdev() is added named
lookup_bdev_perm(). Both of these functions become wrappers
around a common inner fucntion. The behavior of lookup_bdev() is
unchanged, but calling lookup_bdev_perm() will fail if the user
does not have the specified access rights to the supplied path.
The permission check is skipped if the user has CAP_SYS_ADMIN to
avoid any possible regressions in behavior.

blkdev_get_by_path() is updated to use lookup_bdev_perm(). This
is used by mount_bdev() and mount_mtd(), so this will cause
mounts on block devices to fail when the user lacks the required
permissions. Other calls to blkdev_get_by_path() will all happen
with root privileges, so these calls will be unaffected.
