[PATCH 1/3] pid: Remove the child_reaper special case in init/main.c

From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm at xmission.com>

It turns out that the existing assignment in copy_process of
the child_reaper can handle the initial assignment of child_reaper
we just need to generalize the test in kernel/fork.c
