namespaces, pid_ns: fix leakage on fork() failure
Fork() failure post namespace creation for a child cloned with CLONE_NEWPID leaks pid_namespace/mnt_cache due to proc being mounted during creation, but not unmounted during cleanup. Call pid_ns_release_proc() during cleanup. Signed-off-by: Mike Galbraith <efault@gmx.de> Acked-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Reviewed-by: "Eric W.
