==================== Changes in man-pages-3.52 ====================

Newly documented interfaces in existing pages
---------------------------------------------

perf_event_open.2
    Vince Weaver
        Add PERF_IOC_FLAG_GROUP documentation
            The perf_event_open() ENABLE/DISABLE/RESET ioctls can take an
            argument, PERF_IOC_FLAG_GROUP.  This wasn't documented at all
            until about a year ago (despite the support being there from
            the beginning) so I missed this when initially writing
            the man page.

socket.7
    Pavel Emelyanov, Michael Kerrisk
        Document SO_PEEK_OFF option
            Since Linux 3.4 there appeared an ability to specify the
            offset in bytes from which the data will be MSG_PEEK-ed.
            Describe this socket option in the socket(7) page, where
            all the other socket options are described.


Global changes
--------------

Various pages
    Peng Haitao
        ATTRIBUTES: Note functions that are thread-safe or thread-unsafe

Changes to individual pages
---------------------------

perf_event_open.2
    Vince Weaver
        Clarify the perf_event_open() wakeup_events/wakeup_watermark fields
            Clarify the perf_event_open() wakeup_events/wakeup_watermark
            fields a bit, based on info from kernel commit cfeb1d90a1b1.
    Vince Weaver
        Update to match the Linux 3.10 release
            This patch updates the perf_event_open() documentation to
include
            new interfaces added in the 3.10 kernel.

            It also documents a few [To be documented] instances left over
            from the 3.7 kernel.
    Vince Weaver
        Small correction to description of 'flags' argument

alloca.3
    Adrian Bunk
        Correct information on getting non-inlined version with gcc+glibc
            - remove the incorrect information that -fno-builtin would help
            - add -std=c11 to the list of strict options
            - emphasize more that both the gcc option and not including
              alloca.h are needed
            - add the #ifdef from the glibc alloca.h to make the situation
              clearer

pthread_attr_setschedparam.3
pthread_attr_setschedpolicy.3
pthread_attr_setscope.3
    Michael Kerrisk  [Manuel Traut, Siddhesh Poyarekar]
        The inherit-scheduler attribute must be set to
PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED
            In order for the attributes set by these functions to have
            an effect, the caller must use pthread_attr_setinheritsched(3)
            to set the inherit-scheduler attribute of the attributes object
            to PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED.

proc.5
    Michael Kerrisk
        Document /proc/[pid]/fd/ anon_inode symlinks
    Mike Frysinger
        Document /proc/[pid]/fd/ symlinks a bit more
            Describe the type:[inode] syntax used in this dir

bootparam.7
    Michael Kerrisk  [Dan Jacobson]
        Remove outdated text on LILO and LoadLin
            Strike the discussion of LILO and LoadLin, which
            are long obsolete, and make a brief mention of GRUB.
            See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=604019
    Andrea Remondini
        Document the 'resume' boot parameter
