if ns == 0, "p" won't see the signal anyway, so all we need is

- info.si_pid = task_tgid_vnr(current);
+ info.si_pid = task_tgid_nr_ns(current, task_active_ns(p));

like we do in __do_notify().


But. this of course doesn't work for sys_kill(). Can't we change the helpers
which send SI_FROMUSER() signals so that they do not fill .si_pid at all?
Then send_signal() can do:

default:
copy_siginfo(&q->info, info);
info.si_pid = 0;
if (!from_ancestot_ns)
info.si_pid = task_tgid_nr_ns(current, ...);
?

Yes, we use "current". But we already used it in siginfo_from_ancestor_ns().

Oleg.
