SubjectRe: [PATCH] prctl: return MCE process flags through pointer
> Sorry, I wasn't aware of any published API, PR_MCE_KILL and KILL_GET just got accepted into mainline.  

An API is published as soon as the kernel including it is released.

We could have fixed it if you had mentioned that during code review before 2.6.32, but
now it's too late (at least unless it would have been fundamentally broken or something like
that, but I don't think that's the case)
