commit2151ad1b067275730de1b38c7257478cae47d29e (patch)
parentclone: add CLONE_PIDFD (diff)
signal: support CLONE_PIDFD with pidfd_send_signal
Let pidfd_send_signal() use pidfds retrieved via CLONE_PIDFD. With this patch pidfd_send_signal() becomes independent of procfs. This fullfils the request made when we merged the pidfd_send_signal() patchset. The pidfd_send_signal() syscall is now always available allowing for it to be used by users without procfs mounted or even users without procfs support compiled into the kernel.
