Subject: [RFC][v8][PATCH 4/10]: Add target_pid parameter to alloc_pidmap()

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

Changelog[v6]:
	- Separate target_pid > 0 case to minimize the number of checks needed.
Changelog[v3]:
	- (Eric Biederman): Avoid set_pidmap() function. Added couple of
	  checks for target_pid in alloc_pidmap() itself.
Changelog[v2]:
	- (Serge Hallyn) Check for 'pid < 0' in set_pidmap().(Code
	  actually checks for 'pid <= 0' for completeness).
