Unknown symbol find_task_by_pid_ns

You will come across this error

if you are trying to write a module using the function find_task_by_pid_ns and your kernel version is above 2.6.30.
This is because in kernels after 2.6.30 this symbol is no longer exported and instead of this the function pid_task needs to be used.


Here is an example module for using the pid_task to find out a process from its pid. "Module to find a task from its pid"
