pids: refactor vnr/nr_ns helpers to make them safe
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:38 +0000 (16:58 -0700)]
Inho, the safety rules for vnr/nr_ns helpers are horrible and buggy.

task_pid_nr_ns(task) needs rcu/tasklist depending on task == current.

As for "special" pids, vnr/nr_ns helpers always need rcu.  However, if
task != current, they are unsafe even under rcu lock, we can't trust
task->group_leader without the special checks.

And almost every helper has a callsite which needs a fix.

Also, it is a bit annoying that the implementations of, say,
task_pgrp_vnr() and task_pgrp_nr_ns() are not "symmetrical".

This patch introduces the new helper, __task_pid_nr_ns(), which is always
safe to use, and turns all other helpers into the trivial wrappers.

After this I'll send another patch which converts task_tgid_xxx() as well,
they're are a bit special.
