The current implementation of F_SETOWN doesn't properly vet the argument
passed in. It never returns an error. If the argument doesn't specify a
valid pid/pgid, then we just end up cleaning out the file->f_owner
structure.

What we really want is to only clean that out only in the case where
userland passed in an argument of 0. For anything else, we want to
return ESRCH if it doesn't refer to a valid pid.

The relevant POSIX spec page is here:

yes,  look good to me.

but I found the another issue.  if the pass argument  is -1.  by the spec describe,
type should be assigned to PIDTYPE_MAX,  Do you think that it deserve another patch ?

Thanks
