==================== Changes in man-pages-3.30 ====================
New and rewritten pages
New page documenting kexec_load(2)
Incorporate fixes from Eric W. Biederman
Eric noted that a few instances of "virtual" should
be "physical" and noted:
There is an expectation that at hand off from sys_kexec
that virtual and physical addresses will be identity
mapped. But this isn't the old Alpha booting convention
where you have a virtual address and then you have to
parse the page table to figure out where your kernel
was actually loaded. Michael Kerrisk
Additions and edits by mtk
Various wording and layout improvements.
Fixed the name of a constant:
s/KEXEC_ARCH_I386/KEXEC_ARCH_386/. Added RETURN VALUE
and ERRORS sections. Added VERSIONS section
Note that CONFIG_KEXEC is needed
Removed details of using syscall; the reader can find them
Added some details for KEXEC_PRESERVE_CONTEXT.
Revised the text mentioning the kernel header, since it is
not yet exported, and it's not certain that it will be.
New page documenting lio_listio(3)
Newly documented interfaces in existing pages
Lucian Adrian Grijincu
Improve description of CLONE_NEWNET
CLONE_NEWNET creates a new network namespace from scratch.
You don't have anything from the old network namespace in
the new one. Even the loopback device is new.
Relocate discussion of CAP_SYS_ADMIN to CLONE_NEWNS section
And rewrite the EPERM description to be more general in
preparation for the new flags to be documented.
Add reference to feature_test_macros(7)
Some pages simply list feature test macro requirements in
For these pages, add a "See feature_test_macros(7)" comment
on the "#define" line.
Use greater consistency in NAME line
(Remove definite article at start of descriptiive clause.)
