        Expand description of CLOCK_REALTIME
            Make it clear that this clock may be discontinuous, and is
            affected my incremental NTP and clock-adjtime(2) adjustments.

    Michael Kerrisk
        Rewrite to focus on system call API
            Rewrite to focus on the system call interface, adding
            some notes on the libaio wrapper differences.
            See the following mail:

open.2
    Nick Piggin  [KOSAKI Motohiro, Jan Kara, Hugh Dickins]
        Describe race of direct I/O and fork()
            Rework 04cd7f64, which didn't capture the details correctly.

poll.2
    Michael Kerrisk
        Clarify that 'timeout' is a *minimum* interval
            Make it clear that 'timeout' is a minimum interval; the actual
            interval will be rounded up to the system clock granularity,
            and may overrun because of kernel scheduling delays.
    Michael Kerrisk
        Clarify discussion of wrapper function emulation
            Clarify that glibc (as well as old libc) provides emulation
            using select(2) on older kernels that don't have a poll()
            system call.
    Michael Kerrisk
        Make the meaning of a zero timeout explicit
            Clarify that timeout==0 causes an immediate return, even if
            no file descriptors are ready.

pread.2
    Michael Kerrisk  [Kasper Dupont]
        BUGS: Note O_APPEND + pwrite() does the wrong thing
            See https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43178

select.2
    Michael Kerrisk
        Clarify that 'timeout' is a *minimum* interval
            Make it clear that 'timeout' is a minimum interval; the actual
            interval will be rounded up to the system clock granularity,
            and may overrun because of kernel scheduling delays.
    Michael Kerrisk
        Expand description of the self-pipe trick
    Michael Kerrisk
        Add further details on pselect6() system call that underlies

proc.5
    Michael Kerrisk
        Note that CAP_SYS_ADMIN processes can override file-max
            Upstreamed from red Hat / Fedora
    Michael Kerrisk
        Document  /proc/[pid]/cgroup
            Upstreamed from Red Hat / Fedora
