SubjectRe: [PATCH 6/6] clone4: Introduce new CLONE_FD flag to get task exit notification via fd
Josh,

I'll certainly try to read this series, but not before next week.

but a couple of nits right now.

And even I have no idea what you are actually doing, this doesn't look
right, see below.

Again, I simply do not know what this code does at all. But I bet the usage
of EXIT_DEAD is wrong ;)

OK, OK, I can be wrong. But I simply do not see what protects this task_struct
if it is EXIT_DEAD (in fact even if it is EXIT_ZOMBIE).

Debuggers won't be happy. A ptraced task should not autoreap itself.
