This changelog entry doesn't really have anything that I can use to work
out if this change might introduce regressions.

It would be helpful to me if you could include:
1) A brief statement about what your trying to achieve and why.
2) The reason why task_pgrp_nr() has changed to task_pgrp_vnr() since
you made the change (that is someone working on pid namespaces) to
task_pgrp_nr().
3) Why you believe this change won't introduce a regression.
