Subject: [RFC][v4][PATCH 3/7]: Add target_pid parameter to alloc_pidmap()

With support for setting a specific pid number for a process,
alloc_pidmap() will need a paramter a 'target_pid' parameter.

Changelog[v2]:
	- (Serge Hallyn) Check for 'pid < 0' in set_pidmap().(Code
	  actually checks for 'pid <= 0' for completeness).
