:) no problem, many people have complained about this. This is an
implementation of Andy's suggestion here:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/3/15/1122

You can see some more detailed discussion here:

I think in general the way this is intended to be used these things
wouldn't happen. Of course, it would be pretty easy for someone who
was malicious and had the ability to create a user namespace to
exhaust pids this way, so perhaps we should drop this part of the
patch. I have no real need for it, but perhaps Andy can elaborate?
