Hello Andi,
thank you,

I found ./man2/timerfd_create.2 from
http://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/docs/man-pages/man-pages is outdated.
TFD_TIMER_CANCEL_ON_SET isn't described, just mention "since linux 3.0"
Clockids CLOCK_REALTIME_ALARM, CLOCK_BOOTTIME_ALARM isn't mentioned at all.

I'm not technical writer, but I'll try to describe _ALARM clockids and
flags introduced by Anton's patchset.
