parentRDMA/restrack: Remove PID namespace support (diff)
RDMA/core: Check that process is still alive before sending it to the users
The PID information can disappear asynchronously because the task can be killed and moved to zombie state. In this case, PID will be zero in similar way to the kernel tasks. Recognize such situation where we are asking to return orphaned object and simply skip filling PID attribute. As part of this change, document the same scenario in counter.c code.
