[PATCH 4/15] Make proc_flust_task() flush entries from multiple proc trees

Since a task will appear in more than one proc tree we need to shrink many
trees. For this case we pass the struct pid to proc_flush_task() and shrink
the mounts of all the namespaces this pid belongs to.

The NULL passed to it means that only global mount is to be flushed.
This is a preparation for a real flushing patch.
