Add proc interface (/proc/user_beancounters) allowing to see current

Ugh, why /proc? This doesn't have anything to do with processes, just
users, right? What's wrong with /sys/kernel/ instead?
We can move it, if there are much objections.
It is just here for more than 3 years (AFAIK starting from Alan's UBC)
and would be nice to have for compatibility (at least with existing OpenVZ).
But if it is required -- will do.

Or /sys/kernel/debug/user_beancounters/ in debugfs as this is just a
debugging thing, right?
debugfs is usually OFF imho. you don't export meminfo information in debugfs,
correct? user usages are the same imho...
