setpgid(child) fails if the child was forked by sub-thread
Spotted by Marcin Kowalczyk <qrczak@knm.org.pl>. sys_setpgid(child) fails if the child was forked by sub-thread. Fix the "is it our child" check. The previous commit ee0acf90d320c29916ba8c5c1b2e908d81f5057d was not complete. (this patch asks for the new same_thread_group() helper, but mainline doesn't have it yet).
