Subject[PATCH] pidns: reboot_pid_ns: use SEND_SIG_FORCED instead of force_sig()
cf3f8921 "pidns: add reboot_pid_ns() to handle the reboot syscall"
uses force_sig() to kill the SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE cinit, this was the
only choice.

After 629d362b we can use SEND_SIG_FORCED instead, force_sig() has
the special semantics and should be avoided if possible.
