Subjectlinux-next: manual merge of the pidfd tree with Linus' tree
Hi all,

Thanks, Christian, for the heads up about this.

Today's linux-next merge of the pidfd tree got a conflict in:

include/uapi/linux/sched.h

between commit:

fa729c4df558 ("clone3: validate stack arguments")

from Linus' tree and commit:

fef0d8e4c7a1 ("fork: extend clone3() to support setting a PID")

from the pidfd tree.

I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary. This
is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any non trivial
conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer when your tree
is submitted for merging. You may also want to consider cooperating
with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to minimise any particularly
complex conflicts.

Cheers,
Stephen Rothwell

+ * of the array is defined using @set_tid_size.
+ * This array is used select PIDs/TIDs for newly
