pid_ns: (BUG 11391) change ->child_reaper when init->group_leader exits
We don't change pid_ns->child_reaper when the main thread of the subnamespace init exits. As Robert Rex <robert.rex@exasol.com> pointed out this is wrong. Yes, the re-parenting itself works correctly, but if the reparented task exits it needs ->parent->nsproxy->pid_ns in do_notify_parent(), and if the main thread is zombie its ->nsproxy was already cleared by exit_task_namespaces(). Introduce the new function, find_new_reaper(), which finds the new ->parent for the re-parenting and changes ->child_reaper if needed. Kill the now unneeded exit_child_reaper(). Also move the changing of ->child_reaper from zap_pid_ns_processes() to find_new_reaper(), this consolidates the games with ->child_reaper and makes it stable under tasklist_lock.
