* polkit_tracker_get_caller_from_pid:
* @pk_tracker: the tracker object
* @pid: UNIX process id to look at
* @error: D-Bus error
* This function is similar to polkit_caller_new_from_pid()
* except that it uses the cache in #PolKitTracker. So on the second
* and subsequent calls, for the same D-Bus name, there will be no
* IPC overhead in calling this function.
* There will be some syscall overhead to lookup the time when the
* given process is started (on Linux, looking up /proc/$pid/stat);
* this is needed because pid's can be recycled and the cache thus
* needs to record this in addition to the pid.
* Returns: A #PolKitCaller object; the caller must use
* polkit_caller_unref() on the object when done with it. Returns
* #NULL if an error occured (in which case error will be set).
