We probably need to fix superblock leak in patch (v4 "fs: Add user
namesapace member to struct super_block"):

Imagine posible code path in sget_userns: we iterate through
type->fs_supers and do not find suitable sb, we drop sb_lock to
allocate s and go to retry. After we dropped sb_lock some other
task from different userns takes sb_lock, it is already in retry
stage and has s allocated, so it puts its s in type->fs_supers
list. So in retry we will find these sb in list and check it has
a different userns, and finally we will return without freeing s.
