IPC: make struct ipc_ids static in ipc_namespace
Each ipc_namespace contains a table of 3 pointers to struct ipc_ids (3 for msg, sem and shm, structure used to store all ipcs) These 'struct ipc_ids' are dynamically allocated for each icp_namespace as the ipc_namespace itself (for the init namespace, they are initialized with pointers to static variables instead) It is so for historical reason: in fact, before the use of idr to store the ipcs, the ipcs were stored in tables of variable length, depending of the maximum number of ipc allowed. Now, these 'struct ipc_ids' have a fixed size. As they are allocated in any cases for each new ipc_namespace, there is no gain of memory in having them allocated separately of the struct ipc_namespace. This patch proposes to make this table static in the struct ipc_namespace. Thus, we can allocate all in once and get rid of all the code needed to allocate and free these ipc_ids separately.
