Don't allow jail "accidental" resurrection of dead jails.

Authored by jamie on Feb 6 2021, 9:21 PM.



Stop dying jails from become alive again via races in fork(2) and jail_attach(2), and by the implicit rebirth of parent jails when a child jail is added when they're dying. Explicit rebirth the documented way, via the JAIL_DYING flag in jail_set(2), is still allowed.

The jail state and user reference count are a little more out of sync, with jail_remove(2) setting the state to dying before all the user references (processes) are gone. This makes pr_state the clear indicator of jail aliveness.

This builds on D28419, D27876, D28458, and D28473

Fix up prison_deref_kill, which had some typos in which prison it was acting on. Also move prisons off of their parent's child lists along with the loop instead of all at the end.
