Subject[PATCH 21/26] wait: Optmize waitpid
Now that which list a task is found on does not matter there is no
reason to walk the child lists for waitpid when task_pid can directly
find the child.

Add a new helper do_wait_pid that finds the target task via pid_task
and verifies it is on one of the lists for the thread we are
reaping.

This is more efficient in two ways. It skips the list traversal
so uninteresting tasks don't slow things down. It guarantees
a task will only be visited once if p->parent == p->real_parent.

Except for the increase in efficiency this results in no user
visible behavioral differences.
