ipc/sem: Fix semctl(..., GETPID, ...) between pid namespaces
Today the last process to update a semaphore is remembered and reported in the pid namespace of that process. If there are processes in any other pid namespace querying that process id with GETPID the result will be unusable nonsense as it does not make any sense in your own pid namespace. Due to ipc_update_pid I don't think you will be able to get System V ipc semaphores into a troublesome cache line ping-pong. Using struct pids from separate process are not a problem because they do not share a cache line. Using struct pid from different threads of the same process are unlikely to be a problem as the reference count update can be avoided. Further linux futexes are a much better tool for the job of mutual exclusion between processes than System V semaphores. So I expect programs that are performance limited by their interprocess mutual exclusion primitive will be using futexes. So while it is possible that enhancing the storage of the last rocess of a System V semaphore from an integer to a struct pid will cause a performance regression because of the effect of frequently updating the pid reference count. I don't expect that to happen in practice. This change updates semctl(..., GETPID, ...) to return the process id of the last process to update a semphore inthe pid namespace of the calling process.
