Right, so trace_events were/are root only, and root 'should' be in the
root pid namespace, and therefore pid magically works.

And I'm not sure, but I don't think the 'nested' root available from
containers should have access to ftrace, so that should not be an issue.

Perf tries real hard to present PERF_SAMPLE_PID data in the pid
namespace of the task that created the event.

As to prio; yes this is a prime example of suck, I would love to change
that but cannot :-(. The only solace I have is that everybody who is
relying on it is broken.

There is a very good reason I'm against adding more tracepoints to the
scheduler, its a nightmare.
