Now that I think about this a bit more, perhaps it's better to just
clear on clone CLONE_SETTLS, and wait until a libc actually requires this
unreg_clone_flags override before introducing it.

Anyway, a "custom" libc could unregister / re-register around clone()
as a stopgap solution.

So I am tempted to drop this specific patch for now until actual libc
requiring it show up.

Thoughts ?

Thanks,

Mathieu
