Subject: [PATCH v2 3/5] signal: support pidfd_open() with pidfd_send_signal()

Let pidfd_send_signal() use pidfds retrieved via pidfd_open(). With this
patch pidfd_send_signal() becomes independent of procfs. This fullfils the
request made when we merged the pidfd_send_signal() patchset. The
pidfd_send_signal() syscall is now always available allowing for it to be
used by users without procfs mounted or even users without procfs support
compiled into the kernel.
