[PATCH] pid: add do_each_pid_task

To avoid pid rollover confusion the kernel needs to work with struct pid *
instead of pid_t.  Currently there is not an iterator that walks through all
of the tasks of a given pid type starting with a struct pid.  This prevents us
replacing some pid_t instances with struct pid.  So this patch adds
do_each_pid_task which walks through the set of task for a given pid type
starting with a struct pid.
