Convert macros to functions to let type safety do its thing. Switch

kernel-doc format for comments.

Some macros couldn't be converted because they use functions from
security.h which sometimes are extern and sometimes static inline,
and we don't want to #include security.h in capability.h.

Also add a real current_user_ns function (and convert the existing
macro to _current_user_ns() so we can use it in capability.h
without #including cred.h.
