To be precise, there isn't a real 'inside' and 'outside' virtualized
environements. Rather pid namespaces are hierarchical.

(Taking another look) it looks like In is_select_one() you're doing the
right thing - you look up the domain of a task based on
find_task_by_vpid() on a passed-in pid. Seems correct.
