It's incorrect like I told you last time. arg 4 is in r10. Linus please don't

The clone prototype is

int clone(int flags, unsigned long newsp, void *parent_tid, void *child_tid) ;

rax: __NR_clone
rdi: flags
rsi: newsp
rdx: parent_tid
r10: child_tid

See appendix A of the x86-64 ABI for details. The kernel ABI
is different from the user space ABI because of the SYSCALL clobbers.

For exit_group please wait for my next merge.
