Ah, no.  The change is correct.  What the patch description doesn't mention is
that this is when a new pid namespace is setting up its own proc filesystem.

I'll change the subject and patch body to:

    proc: Set correct userns for new proc super created by a new pid_namespace

    Fix the setting up a new proc superblock for a new pid_namespace such that
    the user_ns for that proc superblock needs to be taken from the new
    pid_namespace and not the active process.

which I think describes it better.
