nsproxy.pid_ns is *not* the task's pid namespace.  The name should clarify
that.

This makes it more obvious that setns on a pid namespace is weird --
it won't change the pid namespace shown in procfs.

Personally I agree. ->pid_ns is "strange" and it makes sense to
document and make clear the fact that it became the implicit
argument for clone().
