[PATCH 6/20] Add support for pid namespaces hierarchy

Each namespace has a parent and is characterized by its "level".
Level is the number of the namespace generation. E.g. init namespace
has level 0, after cloning new one it will have level 1, the next
one - 2 and so on and so forth. This level is not explicitly limited.

True hierarchy must have some way to find each namespace's children,
but it is not used in the patches, so this ability is not added (yet).
