    public class Solution {
        //Use a hashMap to store <PPID, PID>. But this is not One to One pair because One parent could has a lot successors.
        /*In order to eliminate the collision, we use ArrayList to store a sequence of PIDs.
        * Then use DFS to find all the processes which should be killed.
        * Use an Stack to implement DFS.

            HashMap<Integer, ArrayList<Integer>> map = new HashMap<>();
