As per copy_process():

* Thread groups must share signals as well, and detached threads
* can only be started up within the thread group.
if ((clone_flags & CLONE_THREAD) && !(clone_flags & CLONE_SIGHAND))
return ERR_PTR(-EINVAL);

* Shared signal handlers imply shared VM. By way of the above,
* thread groups also imply shared VM. Blocking this case allows

if ((clone_flags & CLONE_SIGHAND) && !(clone_flags & CLONE_VM))
return ERR_PTR(-EINVAL);

CLONE_THREAD implies CLONE_VM, but not the other way around, we
therefore would be able to CLONE_VM and not be part of the primary
owner's thread group.

This is of course all terribly sad..
