Adhemerval Zanella Netto - Oct. 13, 2016, 7:45 p.m.
This patch remove the PID cache and usage in current GLIBC code.  Current
usage is mainly used for performance optimization to avoid the syscall,
however it adds some issues:

  - The exposed clone syscall will try to set pid/tid to make the new
    thread somewhat compatible with current GLIBC assumptions.  This cause
    a set of issue with new workloads and usercases (such as BZ#17214 and
    [1]) as well for new internal usage of clone to optimize other algorithms
    (such as clone plus CLONE_VM for posix_spawn, BZ#19957).

  - The caching complexity also added some bugs in the past [2] [3] and
    requires more effort of each port to handle such requirements (for
    both clone and vfork implementation).

  - Caching performance gain in mainly or getpid and some specific
    code paths. The getpid performance leverage is questionable [4],
    either by the idea of getpid being a hotspot as for the getpid
    implementation itself (if it is indeed a justifiable hotspot a
    vDSO symbol could let to a much more simpler solution).

    Other usage is mainly for non usual code paths, such as pthread
    cancellation signal and handling.

For thread creation (on atack allocation) the code simplification in fact
adds some performance gain due the no need of transverse the stack
cache and invalidate each element pid.

Other thread usages will require a direct getpid syscall, such as
cancellation/setxid signal, thread cancellation, thread fail path
(at create_thread), and thread signal (pthread_kill and
pthread_sigqueue).  However these are hardly usual hotspots and I
think adding a syscall is justifiable.

It also simplifies both the clone and vfork arch-specific implementation.
And by review each fork implementation there are some discrepancies that
this patch also solves:

  - microblaze clone/vfork does not set/reset the pid/tid field
  - hppa uses the default vfork implementation that fallback to fork.
    Since vfork is deprecated I do not think we should bother with it.

The patch also removes the TID caching in clone. My understanding for
such semantic is try provide some pthread usage after a user program
issue clone directly (as done by thread creation with CLONE_PARENT_SETTID
and pthread tid member). However, as stated before in multiple threads,
GLIBC provides clone syscalls without futher supporting all this
semantics. It means that, although GLIBC currently tries a better effort,
since it does not make any more guarantees, specially for newer and newer
clone flags.

I ran a full make check on x86_64, x32, i686, armhf, aarch64, and powerpc64le.
For sparc32, sparc64, and mips I ran the basic fork and vfork tests from
posix/ folder (on a qemu system).  So it would require further testing
on alpha, hppa, ia64, m68k, nios2, s390, sh, and tile (I excluded microblaze
because it is already implementing the patch semantic regarding clone/vfork).

It's a hotspot for incorrect/broken fork detection.

So the question is whether this is used internally.  Why do you think 
this is safe?  Because we set it again with SET_TID_ADDRESS?

Please rename to “pid_unused” or something like that, to make sure it's 
no longer referenced.

It may make sense to update the file comment.

These while loops look incorrect.  Perhaps just fail the test if the
