Subject[PATCH 4/6] pidns: Don't allow new pids after the namespace is dead.

In the case of unsharing or joining a pid namespace, it becomes
possible to attempt to allocate a pid after zap_pid_namespace has
killed everything in the namespace. Close the hole for now by simply
not allowing any of those pid allocations to succeed. At least for
now it is too strange to think about.
