pidns: Place under CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL
This is my trivial patch to swat innumerable little bugs with a single blow. After some intensive review (my apologies for not having gotten to this sooner) what we have looks like a good base to build on with the current pid namespace code but it is not complete, and it is still much to simple to find issues where the kernel does the wrong thing outside of the initial pid namespace. Until the dust settles and we are certain we have the ABI and the implementation is as correct as humanly possible let's keep process ID namespaces behind CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL. Allowing us the option of fixing any ABI or other bugs we find as long as they are minor. Allowing users of the kernel to avoid those bugs simply by ensuring their kernel does not have support for multiple pid namespaces. [email@example.com: coding-style cleanups] Signed-off-by: Eric W.
