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

clone.2
Michael Kerrisk
Note that CLONE_THREAD causes similar behavior to CLONE_PARENT
The introductory paragraphs note that "the calling process" is
normally synonymous with the "the parent process", except in the
case of CLONE_PARENT. The same is also true of CLONE_THREAD.
Christian Brauner [Michael Kerrisk]
Mention that CLONE_PARENT is off-limits for inits

listen.2
Michael Kerrisk [Peter Gajdos]
The 'somaxconn' default value has increased to 4096

open.2
Adam Borowski
No need for /proc to make an O_TMPFILE file permanent
In the example snippet, we already have the fd, thus there's no
need to refer to the file by name. And, /proc/ might be not
mounted or not accessible.
Michael Kerrisk [Joseph C. Sible]
In O_TMPFILE example, describe alternative linkat() call
This was already shown in an earlier version of the page,
but Adam Borowski's patch replaced it with an alternative.
Probably, it is better to show both possibilities.

ptrace.2
Denys Vlasenko
PTRACE_EVENT_STOP does not always report SIGTRAP

stime.2
Michael Kerrisk
Note that stime() is deprecated

sysctl.2
Michael Kerrisk
This system call was removed in Linux 5.5; adjust the page accordingly

cmsg.3
Rich Felker
Clarify alignment issues and correct method of accessing CMSG_DATA()
console_codes.4
Adam Borowski
Document \e[90m to 97, 100 to 107
Adam Borowski
\e[21m is now underline
Adam Borowski
Update \e[38m and \e[48m

cgroups.7
Michael Kerrisk
The v2 freezer controller was added in Linux 5.2
Michael Kerrisk
Split discussion of cgroups.events file and v2 release notification
In preparation for adding a description of the "frozen" key.
Michael Kerrisk
Describe the cgroup.events "frozen" key
Michael Kerrisk
Improve the discussion of the advantages of v2 release notification

unix.7
