Subject[RFC][PATCH 6/7][v4] SI_USER: Masquerade si_pid when crossing pid ns boundary

From: Sukadev Bhattiprolu <sukadev@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
Subject: [RFC][PATCH 6/7][v4] SI_USER: Masquerade si_pid when crossing pid ns boundary

When sending a signal to a descendant namespace, we must set ->si_pid to
0 since the sender does not have a valid pid in the descendant namespace.
But we cannot do this in sys_kill() since a) we do not yet know the pid
namespace of receiver b) the pid number in sys_kill() may correspond to
a process group and processes in the process group may be in different
namespaces. So masquerade si_pid at the lower level, send_signal()
function.

Note:
- If rt_sigqueueinfo() sets si_code to SI_USER when sending a
signal across a pid namespace boundary, the value in ->si_pid
will be cleared to 0.
