Well, the CLONE_DETACHED without CLONE_THREAD case was never legal, and my
current patch will actually warn about the newly disallowed case too. I've
not gotten any warnings with RH-9, and I don't think anybody else has a
new enough glibc to even use CLONE_THREAD at all.

But yes, there will be a warning, at least for a time (and eventually
we'll just return -EINVAL silently - ie the program will _fail_ the
clone(), it won't just act strangely).
