[PATCH] pid: replace is_orphaned_pgrp with is_current_pgrp_orphaned
Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:52:58 +0000 (00:52 -0800)]
Every call to is_orphaned_pgrp passed in process_group(current) which is racy
with respect to another thread changing our process group.  It didn't bite us
because we were dealing with integers and the worse we would get would be a
stale answer.

In switching the checks to use struct pid to be a little more efficient and
prepare the way for pid namespaces this race became apparent.

So I simplified the calls to the more specialized is_current_pgrp_orphaned so
I didn't have to worry about making logic changes to avoid the race.
