| Subject: [v12][PATCH 6/9] Check invalid clone flags
| 
| As pointed out by Oren Laadan, we want to ensure that unused bits in the
| clone-flags remain unused and available for future. To ensure this, define
| a mask of clone-flags and check the flags in the clone() system calls.
| 
| Changelog[v9]:
| 	- Include the unused clone-flag (CLONE_UNUSED) to VALID_CLONE_FLAGS
| 	  to avoid breaking any applications that may have set it. IOW, this
| 	  patch/check only applies to clone-flags bits 33 and higher.
| 
| Changelog[v8]:
| 	- New patch in set
