[PATCH] usb: fixup usb so it uses struct pid

The problem with remembering a user space process by its pid is that it is
possible that the process will exit, pid wrap around will occur.
Converting to a struct pid avoid that problem, and paves the way for
implementing a pid namespace.

Also since usb is the only user of kill_proc_info_as_uid rename
kill_proc_info_as_uid to kill_pid_info_as_uid and have the new version take
a struct pid.
