    Subject[PATCH 0/3] Introduce the cloning with pids functionality
    When restoring a task (or a set of tasks) we need to recreate them 
    with exactly the same pid(s) as they had before. Thus we need the
    ability to create a task with specified pid. The proposal is to reuse
    the already free CLONE_STOPPED clone flag, introduce the new one
    called CLONE_CHILD_USEPIDS and point to the desired pids with the

    There are two cnages from the previous set doing the same.

    1. The child_tidptr points to an array of pids for current namespace
    and its ancestors. When 0 is met in this array the pid number for
    the corresponding namespace is generated, rather than set.

    2. For security reasons after a regular clone/fork is done in a namespace
    further cloning with predefined pid is not allowed.
