Oren Laadan - May 1, 2010, 2:14 p.m.
From: Sukadev Bhattiprolu <sukadev@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

As pointed out by Oren Laadan, we want to ensure that unused bits in the
clone-flags remain unused and available for future. To ensure this, define
a mask of clone-flags and check the flags in the clone() system calls.

Changelog[v9]:
	- Include the unused clone-flag (CLONE_UNUSED) to VALID_CLONE_FLAGS
	  to avoid breaking any applications that may have set it. IOW, this
	  patch/check only applies to clone-flags bits 33 and higher.

Changelog[v8]:
	- New patch in set
