Do we really need all these complications? Afaics, we can make
a simpler patch,

	--- kernel/signal.c
	+++ kernel/signal.c
	@@ -1136,7 +1136,7 @@ static int kill_something_info(int sig, 
			struct task_struct * p;
	 
			for_each_process(p) {
	-			if (p->pid > 1 && !same_thread_group(p, current)) {
	+			if (task_pid_vnr(p) > 1 && !same_thread_group(p, current)) {
					int err = group_send_sig_info(sig, info, p);
					++count;
					if (err != -EPERM)


task_pid_vnr(p) returns 0 if "p" is not visible from the current's
namespace. "> 1" ensures we don't kill the child reaper as well.

No?

Oleg.
