This looks a bit strange to me, but perhaps this is just matter of taste.
I think pid_nr(pid) should be pid_nr_ns(pid, current->nsproxy->pid_ns),
this is imho much closer to the current meaning. I won't persist though.

I am not sure I understand the "ns->level <= pid->level" check. Isn't it
a bug to use a "wrong" namespace here? In that case BUG_ON() looks better.
If ns could be wrong, "ns->level <= pid->level" is not enough, we should
also check "pid->numbers[ns->level].ns == ns", no?
