[PATCH] pid: replace is_orphaned_pgrp with is_current_pgrp_orphaned
Every call to is_orphaned_pgrp passed in process_group(current) which is racy with respect to another thread changing our process group. It didn't bite us because we were dealing with integers and the worse we would get would be a stale answer. In switching the checks to use struct pid to be a little more efficient and prepare the way for pid namespaces this race became apparent. So I simplified the calls to the more specialized is_current_pgrp_orphaned so I didn't have to worry about making logic changes to avoid the race. Signed-off-by: Eric W.
