pid_vnr returns the user space pid with respect to the pid namespace
the struct pid was allocated in.  What we want before we return a pid
to user space is the user space pid with respect to the pid namespace
of current.

pid_vnr is a very nice optimization but because it isn't quite what we
want it is easy to use pid_vnr at times when we aren't certain the
struct pid was allocated in our pid namespace.

Currently this describes at least tiocgpgrp and tiocgsid in ttyio.c
the parent process reported in the core dumps and the parent
process in get_signal_to_deliver.

So unless the performance impact is huge having an interface that does
what we want instead of always what we want should be much more
reliable and much less error prone.

Yup. xxx_vnr with the existing meaning turns out to be useless.

Thanks, Eric.

Excellent!!!

This allows us to do many cleanups. I am sending the trivial patch just
as example.

With the new semantics of find_vpid() we don't need to play with ->nsproxy
explicitely, _vxx() do the right things.

Also s/tasklist/rcu/.

Hmm. current->nsproxy be NULL during process exit ?
So this safe as long as pid_vnr() is not called after a
process exits its namespaces. Probably no such callers atm.

Yes I did a little audit for those this morning bc I frankly didn't
believe there weren't any.  But I couldn't find any :)

Cool.  The only case pid_vnr would make sense in that context is if
we were talking to user space after we had exited our namespaces.
Which is at least as stretch.
