Description John Reiser 2005-06-24 14:33:02 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
In Linux kernel 2.6.*, clone() takes upto 7 arguments, but /usr/include/bits/sched.h (from sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/bits/sched.h) says there are only 5.  The glibc internal include/sched.h says at least 5, which is correct.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find the prototype for clone().

Actual Results:  -----sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/bits/sched.h
#ifdef __USE_MISC
extern int clone (int (*__fn) (void *__arg), void *__child_stack,
                  int __flags, void *__arg) __THROW;

Expected Results:  #ifdef __USE_MISC
extern int clone (int (*__fn) (void *__arg), void *__child_stack,
                  int __flags, void *__arg, ...) __THROW;
