> On restore, there might be PID value conflicts because of small PID values, if it was checkpoint'ed in a container. Therefore, when checkpointing in a container, we need to move PID value for new processes to a particular value to avoid conflicts on restore.
> See https://github.com/CRaC/example-lambda/blob/master/checkpoint.cmd.sh#L8 for example.
> This PR contains implemented functionality similar to the example above, making this work out of the box. By default, if checkpointing, PID value for new processes starts from 128. 
> To set a custom value, `CRAC_MIN_PID` environment variable should be used. 
> Min `CRAC_MIN_PID` value is 1, max `CRAC_MIN_PID` is not implemented currently.
