Use struct pid parameter in copy_process()



Modify copy_process() to take a struct pid * parameter instead of a pid_t.
This simplifies the code a bit and also avoids having to call find_pid() to
convert the pid_t to a struct pid.

Changelog:
	- Fixed Badari Pulavarty's comments and passed in &init_struct_pid
	  from fork_idle().
	- Fixed Eric Biederman's comments and simplified this patch and
	  used a new patch to remove the likely(pid) check.
