Hi, (already sent this email based on Intel's kbuild robot this
morning, sorry for the dup to those who already got it). 

Yep this looks to me like SPU_FS should have been in the list of
stuff that had not been UIDGID_CONVERTED, but reviving
UIDGID_CONVERTED and adding SPU_FS to it won't work for
non powerpc arch because SPU_FS = n won't be defined. The following can
be used to mark it as incompatible with USER_NS:

Or if the rest of spufs is already okay for user namespace (I have not
checked it, but this seems to be the only place it is dealing with
uid/gid), then the following will fix these particular errors
(cross-compile tested, but I don't have a powerpc to run test on):
