Hm, with this patch applied I'm getting:

gcc -g -I../../../../usr/include/ clone3_set_tid.c /home/brauner/src/git/linux/linux/tools/testing/selftests/kselftest_harness.h /home/brauner/src/git/linux/linux/tools/testing/selftests/kselftest.h -lcap -o /home/brauner/src/git/linux/linux/tools/testing/selftests/clone3/clone3_set_tid
In file included from clone3_set_tid.c:24:
clone3_selftests.h:37:8: error: redefinition of ‘struct clone_args’
37 | struct clone_args {
| ^~~~~~~~~~
In file included from clone3_set_tid.c:12:
/usr/include/linux/sched.h:92:8: note: originally defined here
92 | struct clone_args {
| ^~~~~~~~~~
make: *** [../ /home/brauner/src/git/linux/linux/tools/testing/selftests/clone3/clone3_set_tid] Error 1

One trick to avoid this could be:

#define CLONE_ARGS_SIZE_VER0 64 /* sizeof first published struct */

#define CLONE_ARGS_SIZE_VER1 80 /* sizeof second published struct */

#define CLONE_ARGS_SIZE_VER2 88 /* sizeof third published struct */

struct __clone_args {
__aligned_u64 flags;
__aligned_u64 pidfd;
__aligned_u64 child_tid;
__aligned_u64 parent_tid;
__aligned_u64 exit_signal;
__aligned_u64 stack;
__aligned_u64 stack_size;
__aligned_u64 tls;
__aligned_u64 set_tid;
__aligned_u64 set_tid_size;
__aligned_u64 cgroup;

static pid_t sys_clone3(struct __clone_args *args, size_t size)
return syscall(__NR_clone3, args, size);
