[PATCH] pid: replace is_orphaned_pgrp with is_current_pgrp_orphaned

Every call to is_orphaned_pgrp passed in process_group(current) which is racy
with respect to another thread changing our process group.  It didn't bite us
because we were dealing with integers and the worse we would get would be a
stale answer.

In switching the checks to use struct pid to be a little more efficient and
prepare the way for pid namespaces this race became apparent.

So I simplified the calls to the more specialized is_current_pgrp_orphaned so
I didn't have to worry about making logic changes to avoid the race.
