    [PATCH] namespaces: fix task exit disaster
    This is based on a patch by Eric W.  Biederman, who pointed out that pid
    namespaces are still fake, and we only have one ever active.
    So for the time being, we can modify any code which could access
    tsk->nsproxy->pid_ns during task exit to just use &init_pid_ns instead,
    and move the exit_task_namespaces call in do_exit() back above
    exit_notify(), so that an exiting nfs server has a valid tsk->sighand to
    work with.
    Long term, pulling pid_ns out of nsproxy might be the cleanest solution.
