Unprivileged users should not be able to mount block devices when
they lack sufficient privileges towards the block device inode.
Update blkdev_get_by_path() to validate that the user has the
required access to the inode at the specified path. The check
will be skipped for CAP_SYS_ADMIN, so privileged mounts will
continue working as before.
