Merge tag 'for-linus-20191003' of git://

Pull clone3/pidfd fixes from Christian Brauner:
 "This contains a couple of fixes:

   - Fix pidfd selftest compilation (Shuah Kahn)

     Due to a false linking instruction in the Makefile compilation for
     the pidfd selftests would fail on some systems.

   - Fix compilation for glibc on RISC-V systems (Seth Forshee)

     In some scenarios linux/uapi/linux/sched.h is included where
     __ASSEMBLY__ is defined causing a build failure because struct
     clone_args was not guarded by an #ifndef __ASSEMBLY__.

   - Add missing clone3() and struct clone_args kernel-doc (Christian Brauner)

     clone3() and struct clone_args were missing kernel-docs. (The goal
     is to use kernel-doc for any function or type where it's worth it.)
     For struct clone_args this also contains a comment about the fact
     that it's versioned by size"
