proc: Allow proc_free_inum to be called from any context



While testing the pid namespace code I hit this nasty warning.

It turns out that spin_unlock_bh(proc_inum_lock) is not safe when
put_pid is called with another spinlock held and irqs disabled.

For now take the easy path and use spin_lock_irqsave(proc_inum_lock)
in proc_free_inum and spin_loc_irq in proc_alloc_inum(proc_inum_lock).
