  Currently posix_spawn has to issue at least NSIG sigaction syscalls
to obtain current signal disposition and more if they there are not
either SIG_IGN or SIG_DFL.  The new clone3 CLONE_CLEAR_SIGHAND flags
introduced with Linux 5.5 resets all signal handlers of the child not
set to SIG_IGN to SIG_DFL, thus allowing posix_spawn to skip this
preparation phase.

The exception is the signals defined by posix_spawnattr_setsigdefault
when POSIX_SPAWN_SETSIGDEF is set (since they can be SIG_IGN).  In
this case posix_spawn helper process needs to issue a sigction to 
set the signal disposition to SIG_DFL.

The patchset also adds clone3 implementation for aarch64, powerpc64,
s390x, riscv, arm, and mips.  The clone3 for x86_64 is change to not
align the stack, since this is not async-signal safe (although current
calls does mask/unmask).

* Changes from v1:
- Extend clone3 documentation.
- Remove x86_64 stack alignment on clone3 child.
- Fixed powerpc64 missing initial stack frame.
- Fixed missing save/restore r7 for arm.

Adhemerval Zanella (11):
  linux: Do not reset signal handler in posix_spawn if it is already
    SIG_DFL
  linux: Extend internal clone3 documentation
  Linux: Do not align the stack for __clone3
  linux: Add clone3 CLONE_CLEAR_SIGHAND optimization to posix_spawn
  powerpc64: Add the clone3 wrapper
  aarch64: Add the clone3 wrapper
  s390x: Add the clone3 wrapper
  riscv: Add the clone3 wrapper
  arm: Add the clone3 wrapper
  mips: Add the clone3 wrapper
  Linux: optimize clone3 internal usage

Same comments here that apply for the original v2.

This is actually v3.

Please post v4 with changes and limit it to x86_64 and aarch64.

If arch maintainers respond with a Reviewed-by: then we can include it into the release.

I don't want to make assembly changes this close to the release.
