If the proposed sid already was the session id, then prgp shouldn't
be empty.

but this doesn't really matter, we also check ->signal->leader
(not sure, but afaics this check is not strictly necessary because
of PIDTYPE_PGID check)

This shouldn't happen, or sys_setsid() is buggy. Look, the new session
id is task_pid(current). If sys_setsid() succeeds but we don't change
the session, this means we were already the leader. In that case we
should return -EPERM.
