I've had a think about it and I think we should do one of two things:

#1) Remove the PID setting from the data source patchset. This will keep the
existing behaviour of using the PID of the first traced process only even
if there are forks. Later we can implement #2 or attempt to make it work
even in non root namespaces.

I'm not sure how this will impact your c2c patchset if you are relying on
the PID data Leo?

#2) Make a change in the SPE driver to add an option for disabling CONTEXTIDR.
We will disable this from userspace if the event is opened in a non root
namespace. So we will only show PID data if we know it's valid, otherwise
the existing behaviour of only using the first PID will remain.

Hopefully those solutions will help to minimise changes in behaviour between
kernel releases that could be confusing.
