I am working on this ppd cleanup issue again, I am asking for help to
find a fix in -head for all cases where the sys_ppd is needed during
some cleanup.

The problem is that when the ppd cleanup is invoked:
- we have no guarantee that current is a thread from the Xenomai
- if it is, current->mm is NULL.

So, associating the sys_ppd to either current or current->mm does not
work. What we could do is pass the sys_ppd to all the other ppds cleanup
handlers, this would fix cases such as freeing mutexes fastlock, but
that does not help when the sys_ppd is needed during a thread deletion hook.

I would like to find a solution where simply calling xnsys_ppd_get()
will work, where we do not have an xnsys_ppd_get for each context, such
as for instance xnsys_ppd_get_by_mm/xnsys_ppd_get_by_task_struct,
because it would be too error-prone.

Any idea anyone?
