pidns: make pid->level and pid_ns->level unsigned
These values represent the nesting level of a namespace and pids living in it, and it's always non-negative. Turning this from int to unsigned int saves some space in pid.c (11 bytes on x86 and 64 on ia64) by letting the compiler optimize the pid_nr_ns a bit. E.g. on ia64 this removes the sign extension calls, which compiler adds to optimize access to pid->nubers[ns->level]. Signed-off-by: Pavel Emelyanov <xemul@openvz.org> Cc: "Eric W.
