Subject[PATCH 01/24] pidns: Remove races by stopping the caching of proc_mnt

Having proc reference the pid_namespace and the pid_namespace
reference proc is a serious reference counting problem, which has
resulted in both leaks and use after free problems. Mount already
knows how to go from a pid_namespace to a mount of proc, so we don't
need to cache the proc mount.

To do this I introduce get_proc_mnt and replace pid_ns->proc_mnt users
with it. Additionally I remove pid_ns_(prepare|release)_proc as they
are now unneeded.
This is slightly less efficient but it is much easier to avoid the
races. If efficiency winds up being a problem we can revisit our data
structures.
