ITIMER_REAL: convert to use struct pid
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:19:19 +0000 (04:19 -0800)]
signal_struct->tsk points to the ->group_leader and thus we have the nasty
code in de_thread() which has to change it and restart ->real_timer if the
leader is changed.

Use "struct pid *leader_pid" instead.  This also allows us to kill now
unneeded send_group_sig_info().
