'kill sig -1' must only apply to caller's namespace
Sukadev Bhattiprolu [Wed, 29 Oct 2008 21:01:11 +0000 (14:01 -0700)]
Currently "kill <sig> -1" kills processes in all namespaces and breaks the
isolation of namespaces.  Earlier attempt to fix this was discussed at:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/7/23/148

As suggested by Oleg Nesterov in that thread, use "task_pid_vnr() > 1"
check since task_pid_vnr() returns 0 if process is outside the caller's
namespace.
