| Subject: [v12][PATCH 2/9] Have alloc_pidmap() return actual error code
| 
| alloc_pidmap() can fail either because all pid numbers are in use or
| because memory allocation failed.  With support for setting a specific
| pid number, alloc_pidmap() would also fail if either the given pid
| number is invalid or in use.
| 
| Rather than have callers assume -ENOMEM, have alloc_pidmap() return
| the actual error.
