Subject[PATCH v1 0/2] pidfd: waiting on processes through pidfds
Hey everyone,

/* v1 */
This adds the ability to wait on processes using pidfds. This is one of
the few missing pieces to make it possible to manage processes using
only pidfds.

Please note the following major changes (More details can be found in
the individual commit changelogs.):
- Add the new type P_PIDFD to waitid() instead of a new dedicated
pidfd_wait() syscall.
This is the same approach we discussed a few months ago and still
prefer over adding a dedicated syscall.
- Adapt the tests to the new type P_PIDFD for waitid().
- Remove struct waitid_info patch.
This will be sent out as a separate patch.
- Remove CLONE_WAIT_PID patch.
This will be sent out as a separate patch.

The core patch for waitid is pleasantly small. The largest change is
caused by adding proper tests for waitid(P_PIDFD).

/* v0 */

pidfd: add P_PIDFD to waitid()
pidfd: add pidfd_wait tests
