This isn't quite sufficient. The key thing is that you have to be in an
*ancestor* (or same) pidns, not the *same* pidns. Ideally you can re-use
the check already in pidns_get_parent, and expose it. It would be
something as trivial as:

bool pidns_is_descendant(struct pid_namespace *ns,
struct pid_namespace *ancestor)
{
for (;;) {
if (!ns)
return false;
if (ns == ancestor)
break;
ns = ns->parent;
}
return true;
}

And you can rewrite pidns_get_parent to use it. So you would instead be
doing:

if (pidns_is_descendant(proc_pid_ns, task_active_pid_ns(current)))
return -EPERM;

(Or you can just copy the 5-line loop into procfd_signal -- though I
imagine we'll need this for all of the procfd_* APIs.)
