[PATCH] pid: implement signal functions that take a struct pid *
Currently the signal functions all either take a task or a pid_t argument. This patch implements variants that take a struct pid *. After all of the users have been update it is my intention to remove the variants that take a pid_t as using pid_t can be more work (an extra hash table lookup) and difficult to get right in the presence of multiple pid namespaces. There are two kinds of functions introduced in this patch. The are the general use functions kill_pgrp and kill_pid which take a priv argument that is ultimately used to create the appropriate siginfo information, Then there are _kill_pgrp_info, kill_pgrp_info, kill_pid_info the internal implementation helpers that take an explicit siginfo. The distinction is made because filling out an explcit siginfo is tricky, and will be even more tricky when pid namespaces are introduced. Signed-off-by: Eric W.
