==================== Changes in man-pages-3.45 ====================

New and rewritten pages
-----------------------

s390_runtime_instr.2
Jan Glauber
New page for s390-specific s390_runtime_instr(2)

if_nameindex.3
YOSHIFUJI Hideaki
Document if_nameindex(3) and if_freenameindex(3)
Michael Kerrisk
Edits, improvements and corrections to Hideaki's page
Michael Kerrisk
Add an example program

if_nametoindex.3
YOSHIFUJI Hideaki
New page documenting if_nametoindex(3) and if_indextoname(3)


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

clone.2
Michael Kerrisk
Since 2.6.30, CLONE_NEWIPC also supports POSIX message queues

getrlimit.2
Michael Kerrisk [Trevor Woerner]
Document Linux's nonstandard treatment or RLIMIT_CPU soft limit
Upon encountering the RLIMIT_CPU soft limit when a SIGXCPU handler
has been installed, Linux invokes the signal handler *and* raises
the soft limit by one second. This behavior repeats until the
limit is encountered. No other implementation that I tested
(Solaris 10, FreeBSD 9.0, OpenBSD 5.0) does this, and it seems
unlikely to be POSIX-conformant. The (Linux-specific)
RLIMIT_RTTIME soft limit exhibits similar behavior.

recv.2
Michael Kerrisk [Eric Dumazet]
UNIX domain sockets support MSG_TRUNC since 3.4

sendmmsg.2
Elie De Brauwer
Add example program for sendmmsg()

stat.2
Simon Paillard
Clarify description of EOVERFLOW error
The EOVERFLOW error is not only for st_size, but also
inode and block size fields. See glibc source file
sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/xstatconv.c and kernel source
file fs/stat.c. Also, fix bit/byte confusion
See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=604928

syslog.2
Michael Kerrisk
Substantially reorganize discussion of commands
Make the layout of the discussion of the commands
more readable.
Michael Kerrisk
Add kernel symbolic 'type' names
Michael Kerrisk
Clarify SYSLOG_ACTION_SIZE_UNREAD semantics
SYSLOG_ACTION_SIZE_UNREAD returns the number of bytes
available for reading via SYSLOG_ACTION_READ.
Michael Kerrisk
Clarify where SYSLOG_ACTION_READ_ALL places data it reads
Michael Kerrisk
Clarify semantics of SYSLOG_ACTION_CLEAR
The SYSLOG_ACTION_CLEAR command (5) does not really clear
the ring buffer; rather it affects the semantics of what
is returned by commands 3 (SYSLOG_ACTION_READ_ALL) and
4 (SYSLOG_ACTION_READ_CLEAR).
Michael Kerrisk
Clarify discussion of privileges for commands 3 and 10
Michael Kerrisk
Add mention of CONFIG_LOG_BUF_SHIFT

wait.2
Michael Kerrisk
BUGS: Document odd waitid() behavior when 'infop' is NULL

getifaddrs.3
Michael Kerrisk [Julien Cristau]
Update description of ifa_data to Linux 2.6+ reality
See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=526778

proc.5
Michael Kerrisk [Jim Paris]
Correct description of SwapFree in /proc/meminfo
Michael Kerrisk
Note change of /proc/[pid]/limits file permissions in 2.6.36

ipv6.7
Gao Feng
Add description of getsockopt() for IPV6_MTU
In IPv4,IP_MTU is only supported by getsockopt.
In IPv6, we can use IPV6_MTU to set socket's MTU,
but the return value of getsockopt() is the path MTU.

rtnetlink.7
Michael Kerrisk [Julien Cristau]
Update description of IFLA_STATS to Linux 2.6+ reality
See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=526778

socket.7
Michael Kerrisk [YOSHIFUJI Hideaki]
Document 'sockaddr' and 'sockaddr_storage' types
Andi Kleen
Explain effect of SO_SNDTIMEO for connect()
When SO_SNDTIMEO is set before connect(), then connect()
may return EWOULDBLOCK when the timeout fires.
