Subject: [PATCH] pid: Generalize task_active_pid_ns

Currently task_active_pid_ns is not safe to call after a
task becomes a zombie and exit_task_namespaces is called,
as nsproxy becomes NULL. By reading the pid namespace from
the pid of the task we can trivially solve this problem at
the cost of one extra memory read in what should be the
same cacheline as we read the namespace from.

When moving things around I have made task_active_pid_ns
out of line because keeping it in pid_namespace.h would
require adding includes of pid.h and sched.h that I
don't think we want.

This change does make task_active_pid_ns unsafe to call during
copy_process until we attach a pid on the task_struct which
seems to be a reasonable trade off.
