Description Jan Kratochvil 2006-12-10 09:14:19 EST
Description of problem:
Documented prototype not matching the Linux kernel implementation.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man 2 rt_sigprocmask

Actual results:
long sys_rt_sigprocmask (sigset_t *set, sigset_t *oset, size_t sigsetsize);

Expected results:
long sys_rt_sigprocmask (int how, sigset_t *set, sigset_t *oset, size_t sigsetsize);

Additional info:
kernel-2.6.18-1.2732.el5 kernel/signal.c provides:
asmlinkage long
sys_rt_sigprocmask(int how, sigset_t __user *set, sigset_t __user *oset, size_t
and also 
glibc-2.5-6 sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/ia64/sigprocmask.c calls:
  return INLINE_SYSCALL (rt_sigprocmask, 4, how, CHECK_SIGSET (set),
                         CHECK_SIGSET_NULL_OK (oset), _NSIG / 8);
