pidns: guarantee that the pidns init will be the last pidns process r…

…eaped

Today we have a twofold bug.  Sometimes release_task on pid == 1 in a pid
namespace can run before other processes in a pid namespace have had
release task called.  With the result that pid_ns_release_proc can be
called before the last proc_flus_task() is done using upid->ns->proc_mnt,
resulting in the use of a stale pointer.  This same set of circumstances
can lead to waitpid(...) returning for a processes started with
clone(CLONE_NEWPID) before the every process in the pid namespace has
actually exited.

To fix this modify zap_pid_ns_processess wait until all other processes in
the pid namespace have exited, even EXIT_DEAD zombies.

The delay_group_leader and related tests ensure that the thread gruop
leader will be the last thread of a process group to be reaped, or to
become EXIT_DEAD and self reap.  With the change to zap_pid_ns_processes
we get the guarantee that pid == 1 in a pid namespace will be the last
task that release_task is called on.

With pid == 1 being the last task to pass through release_task
pid_ns_release_proc can no longer be called too early nor can wait return
before all of the EXIT_DEAD tasks in a pid namespace have exited.
