| pid is a function argument and the function does not call detach_pid. So

ns_of_pid() like pid_nr(), pid_nr_ns(), pid_task() etc is a low level helper
unction. ns_of_pid(), like the other helpers can potentially be called for a
process that has already called detach_pid() (i.e for a task that is exiting
but not yet waited on). Hence the 'if (pid)' in ns_of_pid().
