I nominate this for 2018's most-well-documented syscall commit log award. ;)

Right, we should keep this -EOPNOTSUPP.

Yeah, EINVAL tends to be used for bad flags... this is more about an
improper fd.

Does the ns parent checking in may_signal_procfd need any locking or
RCU? I know pid and current namespaces are "pinned", but I don't know
how parent ns works here. I'm assuming the parents are stuck until all
children go away?

Just double-checking for myself: this does not bypass
security_task_kill(), so no problem there AFAIK.
