Subject[patch 15/40] kill sig -1 must only apply to callers namespace
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

commit d25141a818383b3c3b09f065698c544a7a0ec6e7 upstream.

Currently "kill <sig> -1" kills processes in all namespaces and breaks the
isolation of namespaces. Earlier attempt to fix this was discussed at:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/7/23/148

As suggested by Oleg Nesterov in that thread, use "task_pid_vnr() > 1"
check since task_pid_vnr() returns 0 if process is outside the caller's
namespace.
