Subject[PATCH 3/7][v7] Add from_ancestor_ns parameter to send_signal()

From: Sukadev Bhattiprolu <sukadev@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

Subject: [PATCH 3/7][v7] Add from_ancestor_ns parameter to send_signal()

send_signal() (or its helper) needs to determine the pid namespace
of the sender. But a signal sent via kill_pid_info_as_uid() comes
from within the kernel and send_signal() does not need to determine
the pid namespace of the sender. So define a helper for send_signal()
which takes an additional parameter, 'from_ancestor_ns' and have
kill_pid_info_as_uid() use that helper directly.

The 'from_ancestor_ns' parameter will be used in a follow-on patch.

Changelog[v6]:
- New patch added to this patchset, based on suggestions from
Roland McGrath and Oleg Nesterov.
