The pid of the locking daemon can be substituted with a task struct
without a problem. Namely, the value if filled in the context of the lockd
thread and used in lockd_up/lockd_down.

It is possible to save task struct instead and use it to kill the process.
The safety of this operation is guaranteed by the RCU, i.e. task can't
disappear without passing a quiscent state.
