[systemd-devel] [PATCH 1/2] Add detect_userns to detect uid/gid shifts

This adds a new detect_userns function in virt.c which will check
whether systemd is running in the host user namespace (single map of all
available uids and gids) or is using a uid/gid map.

The check makes sure that uid_map and gid_map are both exactly equal to
the default host map (assuming 32bit uid_t) for a process running in the
host namespace.
