Subject[PATCH v2 4/7] kernel/fork.c: Pass arguments to _do_fork and copy_process using clone4_args
Rather than continuing to add arguments to _do_fork and copy_process for
future clone4 extensions, with corresponding churn in every caller, pass
the arguments using the clone4_args structure instead. This allows
clone4 to avoid unpacking the arguments, and allows other callers to use
C99 structure initializers to only initialize the arguments they care
about. Future extensions to clone4_args will thus not need to touch
clone4, fork, vfork, or other callers of _do_fork.
