clone flags



I've been carefully comparing output I obtain with autrace with what I
get from strace.  It appears they differ when the clone system call is
invoked from the C library via fork.  In particular, strace reports
flags of CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID|CLONE_CHILD_SETTID|SIGCHLD, while
autrace says the flags are 0.  The flags are in field a2.
