As Al said it, it's probably not the direction to follow to extend the
clone flags :) But the problem being real, I think we need to insist.
First, we could simplify the API by using child_tidptr to pass a 64bits
array of flags. This would still be a brutal syscall argument hijack but
we can't do better without a new syscall.
Next, we could send the same code using a new syscall.
I have time to work on that.
