New and rewritten pages
-----------------------

posix_madvise.3
Michael Kerrisk
New page documenting posix_madvise(3)

ftw.3

Reorganize the page to give primacy to nftw()
nftw() is the better API, and POSIX.1-2008 marks ftw() obsolete.

Newly documented interfaces in existing pages
---------------------------------------------

getdents.2
Michael Kerrisk [Dima Tisnek]
Document getdents64()
See https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14795

Omar Sandoval, Darrick J. Wong]
Document MS_LAZYTIME

proc.5
Michael Kerrisk
Document /proc/sys/kernel/randomize_va_space
Michael Kerrisk
Document /proc/PID/fdinfo epoll format
Michael Kerrisk
Describe /proc/PID/fdinfo eventfd format
Michael Kerrisk
Document /proc/PID/fdinfo signalfd format


Changes to individual pages
---------------------------

getrlimit.2
Michael Kerrisk
Note that the underlying system call for prlimit() is prlimit64()

ioctl_list.2
Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos
SIOCADDRT accepts in6_rtmsg in INET6 protocol
Heinrich Schuchardt
TFD_IOC_SET_TICKS
timerfd_create.2 mentions TFD_IOC_SET_TICKS. We should add it to
ioctl_list.2, too.

llseek.2
Michael Kerrisk
Advise reader to use lseek(2) instead
Michael Kerrisk
llseek() exists on 32-bit platforms to support seeking to large offsets

madvise.2
David Rientjes
Specify MADV_REMOVE returns EINVAL for hugetlbfs
madvise(2) actually returns with error EINVAL for MADV_REMOVE
when used for hugetlb VMAs, not EOPNOTSUPP, and this has been
the case since MADV_REMOVE was introduced in commit f6b3ec238d12
("madvise(MADV_REMOVE): remove pages from tmpfs shm backing
store"). Specify the exact behavior.

posix_fadvise.2
Michael Kerrisk
Add "C library/kernel ABI differences" subsection

pread.2
Michael Kerrisk
Add "C library/kernel ABI differences" subsection

stat.2
Michael Kerrisk
Add some details on various "stat" versions
Three versions of "stat" appeared on 32-bit systems,
dealing with structures of different (increasing) sizes.
Explain some of the details, and also note that the
situation is simpler on modern 64-bit architectures.

Document TFD_IOC_SET_TICKS ioctl() operation
