I must admit, personally I dislike this change. If it is needed for
the next changes, please explain the need?

Yes, it removes the line from __init function, but it complicates
copy_process(), this doesn't look fair to me ;) I agree, the complication
is minor, but still. And, in fact, to me this change hides CLONE_NEWPID
from grep.

In fact, I was looking at this code when I did 1/4. And I think it is
better to move it (and perhaps another CLONE_NEWPID check in copy_signal)
into copy_pid_ns() path.

Oleg.
