I had considered that, but it wasn't obvious where that conversion
should happen since it wasn't necessary earlier and is now. I can move
it earlier if you feel strongly about it.

Ok. I was trying to provide more information for debugging for me and
for users.

No. If the contid is already set on this task and if it is the same
orchestrator that already owns this one, then block it since the same
orchestrator is not allowed to set it again. Another orchestrator that
has been shown by previous tests to be a descendant of the orchestrator
that already owns this one would be permitted.

Now that I say this explicitly, it appears I need another test to check:

/* only allow contid setting again if nesting */
if (audit_contid_set(task) && ( audit_contid_isowner(task) || !task_is_descendant(_audit_contobj(task)->owner, current) ))
rc = -ECHILD;

So we're back to audit_contobj_owner() like in the previous patchset
that would make this cleaner.
