Whenever the kernel is fixed wrt NS_GET_PARENT, it will take many months
before the fix is trickled down to all relevant kernels running in github,
obs, travis and other ci environments.

In other words, we should be checking whether NS_GET_PARENT works
and skip pidns tests when it fails with ENOTTY.
