Grr, This needs to go. I started with a general function but then
got specific to SI_USER.

Yes, I will undo this...

|
| But more importantly, unless I missed something, this patch is unnecessary

|
| We call masquerade_si_pid() only when from_ancestor_ns == T, this is correct.
| But this means that (!is_si_special(info) && SI_FROMUSER(info)) == T, why
| do we re-check in masquerade_si_pid() ?
|
| And why can't we just do
|
| default:
| copy_siginfo(&q->info, info);
| if (from_ancestor_ns)
| info->si_pid = 0;

and go with this.

|
| ? Why should we check SI_USER and change sys_kill() ?
|
| see also the comment for the next 7/7 patch.
