    Yes. It is a bug, and the description reparent_to_init is likewise

    I have recently realized that a number of the inital pid namespace
    patches have stupid little bugs in them like this. I am upset with
    myself for failing to code review them closely before the went in.
    Live and learn I guess.

    So when I saw this I added this to my growing list of things I needed
    to review before I could assume they were done correctly.

    Feel free to fix it. I'm still a couple days out from having enough
    time before I can start working on pid related issues.
