I think SCHED_FLAG_ALL is for internal kernel use. So is it better to
make it within an #ifdef __KERNEL__ #endif block as Patrick said?

Ok, I'll put the comment for_CLAMP_MIN/_CLAMP_MAX/CLAMP_RESET in
include/uapi/linux/sched.h.

Sorry for the wrong coding style, I'll fix it. And I'll split the
modifications to different patches if I want to do some cleanup.
