[PATCH v3] ipc, mqueue: lazy call kern_mount_data in new namespaces




kern_mount_data is a relatively expensive operation when creating a
new IPC namespace, so delay the mount until its first usage when not
creating the the global namespace.

This is a net saving for new IPC namespaces that don't use mq_open().
In this case there won't be any kern_mount_data() cost at all.

On my machine, the time for creating 1000 new IPC namespaces dropped
from ~8s to ~2s.
