License Scheduler fix INUSE license token detection on same-server Jobs

The License Scheduler is unable to correctly identify the INUSE and RESERVE values of requested tokens (e.g. rusage[MYTOKEN=4], when more than one jobs run on the same server by the same user.

Possible solution:
This could be solved, if the License Scheduler used the provided PIDs of the GRID jobs to filter out the correct job which is using the licenses.
These PIDs are also shown by the output of LMSTAT.
More information can be found in the attached support case ID.

    In your PMR you include an output from lmstat that contains pid information of the form:

    user host: license [pid = 12345] (version) ...

    Can you confirm the specific flags/versions and whether this is a custom build of lmstat?
    None of the documentation for lmstat indicates pid information being available, and it is not shown in the versions of lmstat we have tested in the lab.
