proc: Allow proc_free_inum to be called from any context
While testing the pid namespace code I hit this nasty warning.

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). Signed-off-by: "Eric W. Biederman" <ebiederm@xmission.com>
