Description of problem:
Dockerfile builds cannot change permissions of /etc/pki/ca-trust or create files inside it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

This was a consequence of fixing https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1826183. /etc/pki/ca-trust is a mount point for buildah, the contents of which are managed by the build container. When the build container starts, it adds the cluster-wide CA to the set of anchors, and then runs `update-ca-trust extract` as root.
In the case of the image registry, it wants /etc/pki/ca-trust to be writeable so that `update-ca-trust` can be run as non-root.

I think https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1826183 needs to be considered for reversion, given the impact on existing build behavior.
It means that no one w/ a builder image that includes their own CAs can continue to function as expected, right? Because their CAs will be stomped by the always present mount that that fix introduced.

more specifically, here is my suggested course of action:
1) put in a change to 4.7 and 4.6 that does not mount the content (you can leave the rest of the logic in place)
2) get CI to update to the 4.6.z patch asap
3) reintroduce the mount based on a buildconfig api opt-in field. in 4.6+4.7.
Verified in version:
STEP 1: FROM registry.svc.ci.openshift.org/ocp/4.7:base
STEP 2: RUN chmod a+w -R /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted
STEP 3: RUN ls -ld /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted
drwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 70 Sep 1 19:39 /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted
